“Following up on Kent’s excellent account of the Chapson/Liddy scene in Milwaukee during the 1980s, I’ve been asked by the editors of Dispatches to provide a sketch of its continuation into the 2000s. I also thought I’d extend Kent’s account of James Liddy (1934-2008), who very much shaped my first encounter with poetry, in hopes that it might rekindle some interest in his work.”
