Powers of Possibility

Experimental American Writing since the 1960s

Alex Houen

  • Develops a new concept of literary practice--potentialism--and thus presents an alternative view of literary experimentation to that associated with "postmodernism" and the "postmodern avant-garde"
  • Discusses a range of genres, including poetry, drama, and fiction
  • Presents fresh insight into how contemporary American writers have engaged with political issues
  • Draws extensively on archival material
