"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
The Maximus poems by Charles Olson( Book )
55 editions published between 1960 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Maximus Poems is one of the high achievements of twentieth-century American letters and an essential poem in the postmodern canon. It stands out, in Hayden Carruth's words, as "a huge and truly angelic effort," matching the dimensions of its hero's name and returning poetry to its Homeric and Hesiodic scope. This complete edition of The Maximus Poems brings together the three volumes of Charles Olson's long poem (originally published in 1960, 1968, and 1975, and long out of print) in an authoritative version edited according to the highest standards of textual criticism. Errors in the previous editions have been corrected, twenty-nine new poems added, and the sequence of the final poems modified in the light of the editor's research among the poet's papers. --University of California Press
