This companion to the works of the American modernist poet Louis Zukofsky (1904-1978) is a site in progress, and for a quick overview of the current state of its contents, see the Editor’s Notes. This is conceived as a collaborative project, and all additions, corrections and suggestions—however small—are appreciated.
