Archaeologist of Morning

London, England: Cape Goliard Press, 1970. First Edition. Hardcover. A primary source book for innumerable mid-century masters & beyond, Charles Olson's monumental "Archaeologist of Morning" can be seen as Olson's 'Collected Poems' outside of his famed "Maximus" series, as it contains all the poems Olson himself actually approved for publication in his lifetime not intended for the Maximus series. As such, it contains "Y & X," "In Cold Hell, In Thicket," "O'Ryan," "The Distances," "West," and a slew of poems published in journals over the years. In 2015 I asked poet Neeli Cherkovski about Olson. His response: "Olson is primary. Look for 'Archaeologist of Morning.'" As Robert Duncan described him many years before Cherkovski's comment, Olson was then and is still "...a Big Fire Source. One of the ones we have had to study." (Interior flap). In very fine condition with only small piece of correcting tape covering the copyright year on copyright page. Dust-jacket in very fine condition with only slight shelf-wear to fine-edges of dust-jacket. From the collection of Ken & Ann Mikolowski; founders of Detroit's visionary "Alternative Press," close friends of Robert Creeley and publishers of many Beat/"New York"/Black Mountain-affiliated authors. Very Fine. [Item #3095]
