Other literary forms
Edward Field’s most important works, aside from his poetry, are the novels he wrote in collaboration with Neil Derrick under the collective pseudonym of Bruce Elliot. The most successful of these works was the novel Village (1982), a chronicle of life over many decades in Greenwich Village, New York.
Field also edited an anthology titled A Geography of Poets (1979), which was a notable effort to showcase the works of poets from all over the United States. In 1992, Field, collaborating with Gerald Locklin and Charles Stetler, edited A New Geography of Poets.
