Umbra Magazine (1963-1974): An Introduction and Bibliography

Published May 2021 (Poetry Collection of the University Libraries, University at Buffalo, SUNY)

The fifteenth pamphlet from the University of Buffalo’s Among the Neighbors bibliography series, this 40 page pamphlet consists of a timeline and a short essay, along with a bibliography of the five issues of Umbra magazine. 
“David Grundy’s focus on Umbra magazine provides a vital introduction to the Umbra Workshop, its core and peripheral participants, and the bibliographic contents of its scarce five issues. As well as historicizing this coterie and their house publication, this pamphlet provides a chronology that more fully situates the scope of the Umbra network. While the influence of the Umbra group has been wide-reaching, many would argue it remains far understudied. This issue will be an ideal starting point to expand that conversation.”
David Grundy co-edits Materials/Materialien and is the author of A Black Arts Poetry Machine: Amiri Baraka and the Umbra Poets (Bloomsbury Academic, 2019), Never By Itself Alone: Queer Poetry in Boston and San Francisco, 1944–Present (Oxford University Press, forthcoming), A True Account (The 87 Press, 2022), and Present Continuous (Pamenar Press, 2022), and coeditor, with Lauri Scheyer, of Selected Poems of Calvin C. Hernton (Wesleyan University Press, 2023).
