About this item

The correspondence between American poets Duncan (1919-88) Olson (1910-70) is one of the foundational literary exchanges in American poetry during the second half of the 20th century, say Bertholf (1940-2016) and Smith, because the letters provide the facts and circumstances of what lies under the published literary history and illuminate the pathway from imaginative conception to the published texts by recounting the poetics of formation. The letters are in sections on "near-far Mister Olson" (1947-55); Duncan in Majorca (1955-56); "Haven't you, from of 'wisdom as such' on given me myself" (1956-57); projecting verse, opening the field (1958-61); and "you must feed your heart, Mr. Olson!" (1963-69). An appendix contains Guggenheim letters in which each speaks about the other. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
