Letter to an Imaginary F.has been added to your Cart. In his vision for a different world, McGrath does not confine himself to earthly matters - he is very much rooted in them right from his beginnings in rural North Dakota, but goes out in ever greater concentric circles to include all of America, all of the world, and all of the universe. His criticism of past and present is severe, but he never leaves out the jocular tones, the shady places, the rumbunctious times. Hold on tight - his visionary flights are tough to follow, but the places he leads you to throughout time are very real. Beware - This is a book you'll never be done with.

I still hold that his book, LETTER TO AN IMAGINARY FRIEND is a literary classic of first rank, as significant a part of our American culture as Thoreau’s WALDEN POND, Whitman’s LEAVES OF GRASS, Sandburg’s, THE PEOPLE YES, Steinbeck’s GRAPES OF WRATH.

Bio: Garin Cycholl, University of Chicago. Abstract: Tom McGrath’s Letter to an Imaginary Friend, a poem worked on from the 1960s-1980s, tries to rethink the secret agricultural history of the American prairie. Cycholl argues that McGrath offers a new means to finding locality for poetry in the Americas. He examines American poetry’s connection to historical memory and place.

If Thomas McGrath were a painter, he would apply fat brushes to giant canvasses in complex color and texture. Gershwin’s gloss and the landscape of Copland are tame music compared to his. McGrath writes in the dissonance of Ives – American cacophony in contrasting threads of autobiography and cause, the red-white-and-blue Midwest against a vein of committed activism. The part of the story that is autobiographical – which Letter to an Imaginary Friend combines with poetry of witness and cause – keeps us on the farm for breakfast, the sleepy eyed awakening of younger siblings, goodbye kisses of mother as I drove the big roan team through the grey of the chill morning.
