A seminal figure in post-World War II literature, Charles Olson has helped define the postmodern sensibility. His poetry is marked by an almost limitless range of interest and extraordinary depth of feeling. With The Collected Poems an even more impressive Olson emerges. This volume brings together all of Olson’s work and extends the poetic accomplishment that influenced a generation.
