This work examines how and why scholars have neglected John Beecher. It is intended to reintroduce the American poet to the literary community and explain his understanding of poetry as voiced art. This work is a two-part overview to John Beecher: writer, poet, journalist, activist, and sociologist. The introduction covers some background on how scholars and academics have neglected Beecher, for a variety of possible reasons. Part one consists of a biography that centers on Beecher's working life, only briefly discussing his four marriages and only mentioning that he had four children. Part two covers a sampling of his poetry, offering explications and critical analysis that point to the conclusion that Beecher should not have been neglected or omitted from literary study to the extent that he has been. The afterword discusses the author's experiences during his research process, including meeting Beecher's widow, Barbara.
