"Kenneth Fearing (1902-1961) began to write his frenetic, exuberant, Whitmanesque social satires. Strongly indentified with the poor, like many political poets who wrote both before and during the Depression, Fearing is also, conversely, quite ruthless about the emptiness of the idealizations that drive self-delusion in modern culture." *Nelson p. 109.
