IF YOU’RE PLANNING TO COME TO THE OLSONNOW EVENT:
A few suggestions: if you are working on any Olson related projects, please let us know so that you can say something about it at the event.
Also, if you would like to open a discussion with a quotation from Olson, please bring it.
I am posting two essays on the documents page from my forthcoming book A little history, due out from Beyond Baroque in Los Angeles in Spring 06. Most of the book is centered on Olson or somehow related to concerns emerging from his work or my relationship to it. The first essay, “Republics of Poetry,” serves as the introduction to the book; the second “What to whom” is an exercise in investigation, looking at a selection of commentary by women poets on Olson. Please note that all the references are not included in these versions.
