George Pitts and the Longer Line in Poetry

This page is a link to my essay on the longer line, and it is also a homage to the brilliant poet George Pitts, who died sadly in 2015. John Ashbery was a great admirer of George’s work and introduced me to him. As well as being an innovator who worked with the longer line, George worked in the NY fashion industry, and he features in the film below:

So following on from my essay on The Prose Poem, here is my Fortnightly Review essay on The Longer Line which includes my thoughts about George’s poetry.
