Edited by Wendy Barker and Dave Parsons, Far Out: Poems of the '60s includes poems by over 80 poets who remember that tumultuous decade from a wide range of vantage points. This collection brings to life the experiences of people who vividly remember the effects of the assassinations of Medgar Evars, JFK, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, who lived through the period of the Vietnam War and the protests against it, and who experienced the rise of Second-Wave Feminism, the Civil Rights Act and the emergence of the Black Power and Chicano movements, as well as the Apollo 11 moon landing. For anyone who thinks the 1960s were only about sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, this book will be revealing — although those subjects are also amply covered within these pages! Far Out examines the link between generational revolt and poetic expression, and the visionary tradition of nonconformist literature.
