SELECTED POEMS OF VACHEL LINDSAY Edited by Mark Harris
The poetry of Vachel Lindsay is a rare example of the passion to mingle art with a programmatic national and religious purpose. Lindsays range of interests and activities was manifested in his early art-school training, his prophetic book on the motion picture, and his days of literary vagabondage. For a time he was a troubadour, tramping about the country without money or baggage, carrying only a sheaf of prose and poetry, and from his experiences gathering images and ideas for his future work.
A rebellious and tormented spirit, Lindsay has bequeathed to America a body of poetry articulating the best dreams of the Utopian Midwest in its clash with American industrial prudence. His vision is as secular as it is mystical, and as timely as it is timeless.
There has long been a need for a careful selection of Vachel Lindsay's poems, and Mark Harris has filled that need with this volume. He has selected what he feels to be the most enduring of Lindsay's work, unified it thematically, and introduced it with an extended biographical preface.
Mark Harris is well known for such novels as Something About a Soldier, Bang the Drum Slowly, The Southpaw, and Wake Up, Stupid. He teaches at San Francisco State College.
