The work of one of the leaders of the multicultural turn in North American poetry is examined in this literary critique. In these essays, Tony Vallone explicitly examines the Italian-Americanness of Maria Mazziotti Gillan's prosody and childhood, while Joe Weil attempts to place her work in relation to a number of schools of American poetics, political ideologies, and autobiography.
