    California Poetry: San Francisco in the 1950s
    The Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West -
    Brenda Hillman and Robert Hass in conversation with Matthew Zapruder

    Poet Matthew Zapruder asks Robert Hass and Brenda Hillman if there is a Northern California tradition in poetry and writing? If so, what things make it distinct? And what does it have to do with physical place and geography? Or with historical setting or accident? Or with concepts of redemption, rejuvenation, spiritual or other liberation? Are there neglected and/or misunderstood Northern California poets or poetic traditions? And how might we deepen our understanding of what kind of poetry this region has produced?
