Charles Olson and Frances Boldereff : a modern correspondence by Charles Olson( )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,384 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."
The New long poem anthology( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The New Long Poem Anthology: Second Edition is an irreplaceable roadmap of a vital and powerful poetic form, a record of the most seductive and sustained 'singing talk' in postmodern Canadian writing. Edited by Sharon Thesen, this collection of long poems, longer works, sequential poems, extended poems, serial, lengthy or longish poems extend the geography of postmodern Canadian poetry as it was laid out in 1979, exemplifying Michael Ondaatje's early observation that "the most interesting work being done by poets today can be found within the structure of the long poem." Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

The good bacteria : [poems] by Sharon Thesen( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sharon Thesen gives us a layered meditation on energy and endings: the irrepressible energy of life, and the end of everything - the natural world, home, love, youth, safety, all we understand to be familiar. In a sequence of poems on a wildfire that denudes hills around her home and forces an evacuation, Thesen marries these preoccupations. She captures beauty at the periphery of things: a neighbour's yellow dress, a tube of Polysporin, a blue-and-white tin awning that an observer momentarily mistakes for a lake. Thesen's voice reminds us of the spiritual yearning that can surprise any of us, even in our most mundane moments."--Jacket
