labels / classifications of Young[edit]

I wish Dean Young well, and may his poems be read widely. However, somebody needs to please cite to something that supports the claim (made here in the Wiki entry as of December 2010) that Young is "often" said to be a "second generation" New York School poet. That claim seems incorrect, wildly so, given Young's birthdate. People such as Clark Coolidge (born 1939, more than 15 years before Young) are typically identified as second generation NY School poets.

Also, a citation is needed to support the assertion that Young is the embodiment of poetic "neo-Surrealism." Where is that stated? The standard text on American poetry and neo-surrealism in the last half of the twentieth century -- Sun at Night, by Andrew Joron -- does not include Young among the thirty or forty poets discussed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.111.154.132 (talk) 15:16, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
