Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 9:46am
Gary Grieve-Carlson / The Charles Olson Society

If you could choose only one poem by Charles Olson--for inclusion in an anthology, or to teach to undergraduates, or for a graduate seminar, or as your personal favorite, or as his very best, or his most significant--which would it be? The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a roundtable discussion at the May 2011 American Literature Association conference in Boston. Six roundtable participants will be invited to offer ten-minute justifications or explications or celebrations of one poem by Charles Olson. Some might argue that Olson's poems don't stand alone as well as, say, Frost's or Stevens's--that Olson needs to be read in bigger chunks.
