Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0925904953, Paperback)

The book comprises two essays recovered by editor Joshua Hoeynck, from the Archive of Charles Olson at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut, and printed with the permission of the estate of Charles Olson and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. These essays are "The Principle of Measure in Composition by Field," and "Notes on Poetics (Toward Projective Verse II)" and together make for a significant contribution and addition to Olson's seminal essay, "Projective Verse," published in 1950. The book is particularly important in showing some relation of Olson's thinking to the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead. The texts of Olson's essays are copyright 2010 by the University of Connecticut Libraries. The introduction is copyright 2010 by Joshua Hoeynck.
