The Living Underground: A Prose Anthology

By Hugh Fox | Go to book overview

JACK MICHELINE--

The name "Micheline" is a little misleading. Micheline's original name was Harvey Martin Silver and he was born in the Bronx in November of 1929 of Russian-Rumanian parents.

His poetry appeared early on in such keystone anthologies as Wilentz THE BEAT SCENE ( 1960) and Seymour Krim THE BEATS, and it is to the Beat Mystique that he owes not only much of the content but also the form of his work.

As Gerald Nicosia says in his essay on Micheline in THE DICTIONARY OF LITERARY BIOGRAPHY, Vol. 16, THE BEATS: LITERARY BOHEMIANS IN POSTWAR AMERICA, Vol. II, p. 412: "Micheline's poetry is . . . unmistakably Beat. To begin with, it is oral poetry, meant to be read aloud; it captures the rhythm of street speech. . . . Micheline's subject matter . . . also places him in the heart of the Beat camp. But above all, it is Micheline's all-embracing view of human life as part of a universal harmony that distinguishes his poetry from the . . . academic verse against which the Beats rebelled."

He was a friend of Kerouac's and when he goes on about Mankind he even sounds like Kerouac: "Man is . . . the most dangerous animal in the universe . . . it's frightening, this modern age of manequins walking in the streets, robots as politicians. Let us all do a dance. Let's celebrate life" ( CONTEMPORARY AUTHORS, Vol. 122, 1988, p. 324).

The work published here is from SKINNY DYNAMITE, published by Second Coming Press in 1980.
