The Poetry Center presents Dale M. Smith speaking on Robert Duncan and Charles Olson, reading briefly from his own poetry, and in conversation. Smith presents two pieces drawing on his research into the relationship between poets Duncan and Olson, as involved in his work on two books: An Open Map: The Correspondence Between Robert Duncan and Charles Olson and Imagining Persons: Robert Duncan's Lectures on Charles Olson, both volumes co-edited by Smith and the late Robert J. Bertholf (University of Mexico Press, 2017). Smith also reads briefly from his recent book Sons (Knife Fork Book, 2017). The reading is followed by a conversation with the audience.
