About this item

Bertholf and Smith have transcribed tapes of nine lectures that Duncan (1919-88) delivered about fellow American poet Olson (1910-70) on various occasions from 1961 to 1983. The lectures are a full-throated challenge to the hegemony of New Criticism as an esthetic and critical practice, they say, and each one addresses Olson's notion of "projective verse" (Duncan's "field poetics"), a method of composition that encourages the variables of personal creative practice to interact within a larger historical process of cultural realization. Bertholf and Smith also edit a companion volume of correspondence between the two poets. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
