About this title

Synopsis:

Charles Olson called his letters with Robert Creeley "perhaps the most important correspondence of my life."

Through personal narrative and critique of individual poems, the nearly 1000 letters that passed between Olson and Creely parse the evolution of their generation's poetics. Meticulously collected and edited by George F. Butterick and, later, Richard Blevins, these ten volumes stand as priceless testament to an entire era of the American word.

About the Author:

A seminal figure in post-World War II literature, Charles Olson (1910-1970) has helped define the postmodern sensibility. His work is marked by an almost limitless range of interest and extraordinary depth of feeling. Olson's themes are among the largest conceivable: empowering love, political responsibility, historical discovery and cultural reckoning, the wisdom of dreams and the transformation of consciousness all carried in a voice both intimate and grand, American and timeless, impassioned and cooly demanding. His books include The Collected Poems of Charles Olson (University of California Press, 1997), The Maximus Poems (University of California Press, 1983), and The Collected Prose (University of California Press, 1997).

Robert Creeley (1926-2005) published more than sixty books of poetry, prose, essays, and interviews in the United States and abroad, including "If I Were Writing This, Selected Poems 1945-1990, The Collected Poems of Robert Creeley, 1975-2005, "and "The Island. "His many honors include the Lannan Lifetime Achievement Award, the Frost Medal, the Shelley Memorial Award, and the Bollingen Prize in Poetry. He was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and Distinguished Professor in the Graduate Program in Literary Arts at Brown University.
