Philip Whalen

With the publication of his complete poetry (a wonderful book!) it's time to consider his work in a more responsible way than it has been in the past. No one has written an extented study of his life or his work. Why not?

I feel the same way about Philip Larken.  How long did it take his poetry to be "discovered"?  especially if they don't find the majority of a person's work, like Dickinson, while they are alive.
