"Cross-cultural," to Nowak, means many things the gathering of diverse peoples, diverse genres of writing, music and song, visual poetry, and sound poetry; also the gathering of the local with the distant, to the enrichment of both... In this he extends the work of Charles Olson and Jerome Rothenberg, and before them of Walt Whitman, to realize, as Olson put it, an actual earth of value, in and through writing.
