Selected letters by Charles Olson( )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, edited and annotated by Ralph Maud, we see Olson at the height of his powers and also at his most human. The nearly two hundred letters, selected from a known three thousand, demonstrate the wide range of Olson's interests and the depth of his concern for the future. As we read through the letters, which span the years from 1931, when Olson was an undergraduate in college, to his death in 1970, a fascinating portrait of this complex poet and thinker emerges."--Jacket
Charles Olson's reading : a biography by Ralph Maud( )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this narrative account of the life and work of Charles Olson, Ralph Maud focuses on what the poet read as a basis for understanding the work he produced. To an extraordinary degree, Olson's reading and life were co-extensive, according to Maud, who notes that Olson saw his written output over his lifetime as a total cosmology. An individual who rarely traveled, this major American poet explored the world and its history as well as the furthest reaches of the thought of his day through books. Maud builds upon George Butterick's annotated listing of Olson's library, bought by the University of Connecticut after the poet's death in 1970. The present volume, however, adds categories of books Butterick deliberately omitted: Olson's childhood books and poetry by his own contemporaries
Charles Olson and Frances Boldereff : a modern correspondence by Charles Olson( )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The highly influential yet undisclosed relationship between modern American poet Charles Olson (1910-1970) and Frances Boldereff comes to light in this first collection of their extensive, often impassioned, correspondence. What starts with a fan letter from the idiosyncratic intellectual Boldereff soon surges to an exchange numbering hundreds of pages. In these letters, one views the early stages of the Maximus poems and the developing poetics embodied in Olson s 1950 essay on Projective Verse. While this correspondence reveals much about the work and life of a man who became the dominant figure among the Black Mountain poets, Boldereff herself stands out as an extraordinary collaborator, occasional lover, and intellectual rival to Olson. Here are two great minds and creative spirits caught up in an exchange every bit as riveting as the letters of de Beauvoir and Sartre."

What does not change : the significance of Charles Olson's "The Kingfishers" by Ralph Maud( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking its title from the first line of Charles Olson's poem "The Kingfishers," this book provides a full-scale exegesis of that milestone poem in postwar American literature, the poem that led off and set the tone for Donald Allen's New American Poetry, the defining anthology of the sixties. The author demonstrates that "The Kingfishers," as Olson's first long poem, is so crucial to understanding his development that a study of it (along with "The Praises," cut from the same cloth) takes one into every aspect of Olson's early life and thought. Insight into Olson's apprenticeship and purposes has been somewhat blurred because "The Kingfishers" has not been entirely understood. This long-awaited explication (Guy Davenport announced its existence and anticipated its importance in 1985) removes what has been an obstacle in the path of further study of Olson." "This study argues that Olson is not seeking a place within the "modern movement," but rather, because what does not change "is the will to change," he is creating the ground for a new and different future. In this, his allies are contemporaries, such as the artist Corrado Cagli, the businessman Jean Riboud, and the mathematician Norbert Wiener. The intricate influences of these and others are fully laid out, as Maud's volume answers many of the questions that have delayed progress in evaluating the full richness of Charles Olson's genius."--BOOK JACKET

Charles Olson at the harbor by Ralph Maud( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Olson was without question the most influential of the "New American Poets" published by Grove Press in the mid-twentieth century." "With Charles Olson at the Harbor, Ralph Maud, a long-time Olson scholar, friend and correspondent insists that Olson was as careful with his genius as any young man could be; that he achieved critical success as a Melville scholar; that his "projective verse" established an undeniable and lasting sea change in poetic thought around the world; and that he eschewed success of the ordinary kind to create a new restorative stance in the polls that can take us into a different future - all reflected in a large body of poetry that the world can no longer ignore."--Jacket
