A key figure in the San Francisco Renaissance, Madeline Gleason is among the principal poets in the history of women's writing. Associated early in her career with Robert Duncan and James Broughton, she was also deeply respected by the Beats. Gleason was one of the few women to be included in Donald Allen's landmark anthology, The New American Poetry (1960).
