Charles Olson reads from The Maximus Poems

The following clip contains a segment of the film about Charles Olson, Polis Is This. In this segment, Olson reads “Maximus to Gloucester, Letter 27” with what Rachel Blau DuPlessis calls choreographic gestures, motions that continually point up the forward/backward, in-body/away planes or zones of geographic understanding.

Muthologos, the revised second edition of Charles Olson‘s lectures and interviews, will be available this fall.
