Diane Wakoski (wah-KAH-skee) wrote three critical essays that were published by Black Sparrow Press: Form Is an Extension of Content (1972), Creating a Personal Mythology (1975), and Variations on a Theme (1976). These essays, with other essays that had originally appeared in American Poetry Review, where she was a regular columnist between 1972 and 1974, and in her books of poetry, were reprinted in Toward a New Poetry (1980).
