Robert Duncan: An Interview

Toronto, Canada: The Coach House Press, 1971. First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. "And I'm strongly, strongly persuaded that the entire area of poetry is consciousness. Not that there isn't any unconsciousness but that everything in poetry is manifest and the minute it's sounded it belongs to consciousness." Transcript of a deep, thoughtful interview with Robert Duncan (1919-1988), the canonical American poet of the Beat Generation, San Francisco Renaissance & Black Mountain School. Conducted by the respected Canadian poets George Bowering & Robert Hogg the day after his reading at Sir George Williams University in Montreal on the morning of April 19, 1969 per note preceding interview. Duncan discusses & dissects his own now-classic poems & delves into broad subjects including individuality-vs.-conformity. Designated "A Beaver Kosmos Folio" by publisher on title page, a handsome, unpaginated chapbook production with images of Duncan on covers, frontispiece (Bertholf, A40, pgs. 111-112).
