A Quick Graph: Collected Notes & Essays

San Francisco, CA: Four Seasons Foundation, 1970. First Trade Edition. Softcover. Robert Creeley's first published assembly of prose literary criticism and commentary was published by Don Allen's Four Seasons Foundation in 1970, and contains some of Creeley's best writing on the art of poetry. Creeley's investigative mind penetrates the surfaces and seeks to examine creativity at the root. He utilizes examples from other writers--their lives, and what they have taught him about literature as a whole--to bring forth some of the most astute and erudite critical evaluations yet brought forth. With a career as a published author that spanned over 50 years, Creeley stands tall as a true American master. From the library of Ken & Ann Mikolowski, close friends of Robert Creeley & founders of Detroit's "Alternative Press," publishers of many Beat/New York School/Black Mountain-related authors.
