A Community of Writers: the essays by Snodgrass, Philip Levine, and Robert Dana

In a commemorative book titled A Community of Writers, the essays by Snodgrass, Philip Levine, and Robert Dana have captured the unique interaction, enabled by the Writers’ Workshop, among the great poets who taught there in the early 1950s and the talented students who worshipped them and later, when they became great poets in their own right, took a critical eye at their teachers. Excerpts from these essays are reprinted here with the kind permission of Peg Dana from the Robert Dana Estate.
