Trobar, a magazine of the New American Poetry


Trobar, a magazine of the New American Poetry 1 (1960).
"Trobar magazine was published in Brooklyn in only five issues from 1960 to 1964, but it was tremendously influential in spreading knowledge about deep image poetry. Deep image poetry, according to Robert Kelly, is 'poetry not necessarily dominated by the image, but in which it is the rhythm of the images which forms the dominant movement of the poem.' Of the three editors, Kelly has been the most tireless and enthusiastic poet, reader, and teacher, exerting a charismatic influence. He has published more than seventy-five volumes of poetry and prose (his first, Armed Descent, was published by Jerome Rothenberg’s Hawk’s Well Press) and was a founding editor of Chelsea Review and Matter and a contributing editor to Caterpillar, Alcheringa, Sulfur, Conjunctions, and Poetry International, and guest editor to Los (new series, no. 1, 1975). ..."
