In 1953, Michael McClure settled in San Francisco, where his poems were published in a number of little magazines, and where he grew to be associated with the "San Francisco Renaissance." According to Allen Ginsberg, "McClure's poetry is a blob of protoplasmic energy." Inscribed by Michael McClure on the half title page.
