Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a provocative, compelling, and useful study of artists whose work reflects the sensibilities and politics of the sixties...Out of the Sixties offers important and intelligent insights into both looking at and feeling about that window of experience." Regina Barreca, American Literature

"...Wyatt's essays are remarkably readable and illuminating....What is most joyously liberating in these studies is the nature of Wyatt's engagement—the vibrant personalism of tone and meditation. Wyatt lets his readers know that something is at stake for him in these texts and in the issues they at once respond to and introduce." Philip K. Jackson, Contemporary Literature
