Walter Lowenfels
Walter Lowenfels was among the principal figures in the revolution of the word, the movement to modernize American writing in the early years of this century. He broke major ground as a surrealist and as a political poet. Closely identified with Henry Miller and Anais Nin, he was a key figure in the Paris avant-garde during the 1920s and 1930s. After Lowenfels' return to the United States, he was jailed as a Communist. He was a familiar, radical presence in non-academic poetry.
