2nd printing. A few pages lightly smudged, jacket toned and lightly rubbed, faint crease on front jacket flap. 1987 Hard Cover. xxxvi, 675, [1] pp. Edited, with an introduction, by George F. Butterick. Charles Olson, a second generation American modernist poet, was credited with bridging the gap between such authors as Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams, and New American poets such as the New York School, Black Mountain School, Beats, and the San Francisco Renaissance. A seminal figure in post-World War II literature, Charles Olson has helped define the postmodern sensibility. His poetry is marked by an almost limitless range of interest and extraordinary depth of feeling. With The Collected Poems an even more impressive Olson emerges. This volume brings together all of Olson’s work and extends the poetic accomplishment that influenced a generation.
