About the Author
Charles Olson was one of the most innovative poets of the 20th century. As a teacher at the Black Mountain College, he was one of the three most influential members of the Black Mountain movement, along with Robert Duncan and Robert Creeley. "Creeley and I have since engaged in perhaps the most important correspondence of my life," Olson told a friend in 1950. Creeley, in his turn, found Olson's letters "of such energy and calculation that they constituted a practical 'college' of stimulus and information."
