Ed Sanders presents an illustrated lecture featuring a sequence of projected color Glyphs with text and comments on key points in Charles Olson’s life and times, including the personal interactions of Olson with Sanders beginning in 1962 and continuing until Olson’s passing in early 1970. Included will be a tracing of Olson’s remarkable influence on poetry and writing, lasting into this era and beyond, plus Sanders’ attempt in 1968 to spur a relationship between Olson and Janis Joplin, and other incidents in Olson’s epoch-stirring life.
