Michael Farrell is Poet of the Month

Reviewed by

Which poets have most influenced you?

Gertrude Stein, John Ashbery, Frank O’Hara, Wallace Stevens, e.e. cummings, Marianne Moore, John Cage. Brecht, too, but as theorist rather than poet. I read these poets when I was beginning, as well as Surrealist and Language poets. No one poet of these latter groupings stands out. These days I am more influenced by a poet’s approaches and attitudes than by the writing itself.
