Post-Avant

K. Lorraine Graham nonchalantly muses on her blog Spooks and All today,

"I'm not sure I know where post-avant work begins and ends. Or, I suppose what I mean is that I don't know when the term "post-avant" begins and ends."
I, for one, am with her on this. I normally like to think of myself as a poet coming from a post-Language, objectivist-oriented, New American lineage. Somehow, I've been drawn into using the tricky term "post-avant" lately. In actuality, I'd prefer post-nature or post-Beat or post-New American, or New American ecopoetic. When reading through Daniel Kane's All Poets Welcome about the Lower East Side in the 1960s last night, I was struck by how many schools were represented: Beats, Black Mountain, Deep Image, Umbra, etc.. This cross mixing seems healthier than the current ping pong game in which all post-modern poets are labeled "post-avant" and everyone else is pejoratively labeled "School of Quietude" (acknowledging full well my own use and investigation of the SoQ). I don't have a problem with labels so much as the over-use of them (which I am as guilty of as anyone), which leads them to become vague and non-descriptive stand-ins, a la clichés.

At the end of Graham's post she links to a number of sites discussing post-avant work. They are worth checking out.

SIDE NOTE: Joseph Duemer over at Sharp Sand, has proposed a less derogatory term for the SoQ: Post-Confessional. I haven't given this much consideration, one way or the other, but I thought is was worth putting out there.
