    • The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics is founded by Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman.
    • October 4, When Ann Sexton was having lunch with her friend, fellow poet and collaborator Maxine Kumin to review Sexton's most recent book, The Awful Rowing Toward God, without a note or any warning, Sexton went into her garage, started the ignition of her car, and died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
    • The dictatorship in Greece falls; exiled poets, authors and intellectuals return to the country to publish there.
    • The dictatorship in Portugal falls in April; in the six months prior, with increasing repression and a discouraging atmosphere, little new work is published; yet later in the year, not much new poetry is published either as "writers who had based their style on censor-proof allusiveness and their themes on protest would now have to do some retooling".[1]
