"With Charles Olson at the Harbor, Ralph Maud, a long-time Olson scholar, friend and correspondent insists that Olson was as careful with his genius as any young man could be; that he achieved critical success as a Melville scholar; that his "projective verse" established an undeniable and lasting sea change in poetic thought around the world; and that he eschewed success of the ordinary kind to create a new restorative stance in the polls that can take us into a different future - all reflected in a large body of poetry that the world can no longer ignore."--Jacket." ;
