Charles Olson and The Maximus Poems
It's going to be a treat to really dig in to this! I have Polis is This, the DVD documentary, as well as A guide to... by George F. Butterick and CO's Maximus by Don Byrd. I love these books from Mabee Library--how the library still has resources. I'm setting out into Topeka with this kind of approach, peeling layer after layer. Still looking for a theory about looking. I think about my film theory books--maybe something in there. Topeka as a strip of film layed out. The railroad cuts the beginning scene.
