Events

* Charles Bukowski, fictionalised as alter ego Henry Chinaski, becomes the subject of the film "Barfly" starring Mickey Rourke.
* In his 1987 piece 'Notes on the New Formalism', Dana Gioia wrote: "the real issues presented by American poetry in the Eighties will become clearer: the debasement of poetic language; the prolixity of the lyric; the bankruptcy of the confessional mode; the inability to establish a meaningful aesthetic for new poetic narrative and the denial of a musical texture in the contemporary poem. The revival of traditional forms will be seen then as only one response to this troubling situation." ["The Hudson Review" (40, 3, 1987)]
* Joseph Brodsky, a Russian exile who became a United States citizen, resigns his membership in the American Academy of Arts and Letters in protest over the honorary membership of the Russian poet Evgenii Evtushenko, regarded by Brodsky as a Soviet "yes man".
* First issue of "" is published in April. It is edited by Peter Gizzi and Connell McGrath.
