The Five Social Groupings of Poets

1. Co-Conspirators
(movements & manifestos)

2. Fellow Travelers
(loose ad hoc confederations and alliances or mutual sympathies)

3. Strange Bedfellows
(academic partnerships; the publishing industry; the party circuit; business as usual)

4. Doctor Nos
(cranky gatekeepers: reviewers, editors)

5. Mavericks and Isolatos
(the fringe, the exiled, the out-of-it, the-above-it-all)
