Biographical Sketch

Louis Zukofsky was born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1904, to Russian immigrant parents. He was a self-termed objectivist poet: that is, he believed that the poem should call attention to itself on the page. His major influences included Pound, Eliot, and Shakespeare, and he was a devoted Marxist. His anthologies include All: The Collected Poems, 1923-1958 (1965) and A 1-12 (1959). Zukofsky died in 1978.
