Author: Douglas Blazek

Achieving prominence in his first 25 years, Douglas Blazek became known as an instrumental figure in the sixties literary movement, the Mimeo Revolution: publishing poems in over 500 journals, authoring several dozen books and chapbooks, editing the infamous journal Olé—publishing key works by Charles Bukowski and da. Levy, and vowing to "make poetry dangerous." Several years later, reaching what he felt was his limit, Blazek backed away from these accomplishments to write new poetry and meticulously revise his existing material for the three decades that followed. The series of books now being published by Edition Muta represents the complete life's work of Douglas Blazek.
