Abstract:
d.a. levy (Darryl Allen Levy) was a central figure in poetry and the publishing of poetry in Cleveland, Ohio, from 1962 until his death in 1968. Using a small hand letterpress and mimeograph, levy produced and distributed hundreds of chapbooks, pamphlets, magazines, and newspapers. From 1963-1968 his 7 Flowers Press and his publications The Marrahwannah Quarterly and The Buddhist Third Class Junk Mail Oracle printed the works of scores of Cleveland poets. His own poetry appeared in journals throughout the United States. A significant figure in the Cleveland counterculture of the 1960s, he was arrested several times. He committed suicide in 1968. The collection consists of published poems, artwork, publications, correspondence, legal correspondence, and posthumous biographical sketches. Correspondents include Allen Ginsberg.
