Lorine Niedecker and Reznikoff
I'm also trying to find out what religious affiliation Niedecker was. I can't find anything in quick google search bios. I think there might be mention in an article that's available on JSTOR but I don't have JSTOR access. Ah well.
The reason why I was wondering is because I've noticed the "groups" or writers I like fall into, most often, one of these three categories:
-Catholics (John Wieners, Rimbaud, many many contemporaries, esp around here in Boston)
-Jews (many many contemporaries, Zukofsky, someone else but I can't remember who because of my 2nd freaking head cold in a month's time, darn those 3rd graders)
-poor, or relatively poor, white rural Protestant women (Emily, Lorine, Jane)
There you go.
