It was called the American Century, and in Buffalo, Unused York, it started with the Container American Piece of 1901. Fueled by Nikola Tesla's rotating current generators underneath Niagara Falls, Buffalo was the "The City of Light," a show venture of American industrialization and mechanical ability. William McKinley's death at the hands of a rebel near the composition appeared that American authority would not be unresisted, and Theodore Roosevelt's introduction on Delaware Road would presage the expansion of the American military and financial control overseas.

But for the steel fashions and grain lifts, Puncture Bolt and Passage car gathering plants, Buffalo were too domestic to the neoclassical Albright Craftsmanship Exhibition (1905), afterward the Albright-Knox Craftsmanship Exhibition, whose collection of Unique Expressionists and Pop specialists of the 1950s and 60s is unrivaled; Louis Sullivan’s Guaranty Building (1895; the primary steel-frame high-rise) and Straight to the point Lloyd Wright’s signature prairie-style Darwin Martin House (1903-05), a "residential ensemble" with its Tree of Life windows. That's the history of Buffalo’s twentieth century, an unparalleled relationship of industry and craftsmanship; Milton Rogovin’s photos of steelworkers and barroom verse readings.

The instructing and composing of American writing within the twentieth century at Buffalo regard that legacy. It's found in Charles Abbott and Mary Barnard’s sales of "the substance of poets' wastebaskets" for an unused verse file; the Dark Mountain II campus of Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, and Joel Oppenheimer; the Surfiction development of Raymond Federman; the fabulist postmodernism of John Barth; the political reflection of J. M. Coetzee; the ponders in poetics of Charles Altieri and Joseph Riddel; Leslie Fiedler’s introduction of postmodernism in "Cross the BorderClose the Crevice" (1969); the Dialect verse of Charles Bernstein and Susan Howe. In all, there's the proceeding crossing point of basic thought and scholarly execution.

Olson commented that "the show is preamble": the consideration of writing, and its generation, within the twenty-first century by current Buffalo staff takes after from that introduction.
