Author: Charles Olson

A seminal figure in post-World War II literature, Charles Olson (1910-1970) has helped define the postmodern sensibility. His work is marked by an almost limitless range of interest and extraordinary depth of feeling. Olson's themes are among the largest conceivable: empowering love, political responsibility, historical discovery and cultural reckoning, the wisdom of dreams and the transformation of consciousness—all carried in a voice both intimate and grand, American and timeless, impassioned and cooly demanding. His books include The Collected Poems of Charles Olson (University of California Press, 1997), The Maximus Poems (University of California Press, 1983), and The Collected Prose (University of California Press, 1997).
