The holy forest by Robin Blaser( Book )

"Robin Blaser, one of the key North American poets of the postwar period, emerged from the "Berkeley Renaissance" of the 1940s and 1950s as a central figure in that burgeoning literary scene. The Holy Forest, now spanning five decades, is Blaser's highly acclaimed lifelong serial poem. This long-awaited revised and expanded edition includes numerous published volumes of verse, the ongoing "Image-Nation" and "Truth Is Laughter" series, and new work from 1994 to 2004."--Publisher's description
Reflections on cultural policy : past, present, and future by Evan Alderson( Book )
17 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
This book looks at the roles various world views have played in generating cultural policies at various times in Western history. Evan Alderson's introduction places the work within its social, political and historical framework. Robin Blaser addresses the problem of how we can begin to locate a responsible cultural position at the present time. The volume's historical progression begins with John Humphrey looking at the relation of arts and state in Imperial Rome. Haijo Westra focusses on the relation of language and culture in the medieval world. Jonathan Bordo examines the emergence of the individually framed picture in the Renaissance. Steven Cole examines the artistic autonomy of English Romanticism. Hazard Adams outlines a conception of cultural policy through William Blake. Cultural policy is brought closer to the Canadian context with Gordon Fearn's discussion of communications policy in Canada. Anthony Welch takes up the process of re-comprehending culture within the revolution of communications by examining revolutionary and pre-revolutionary Iran. The two final essays take up the challenge of positing the hope of the post-modern. Barry Cooper begins his examination of the relevant part of post-modernism in the sixth century A.D. Robert Kroetsch sees only a longing for order that must be abandoned so that we may measure the depth of our uncertainties and learn to converse across them. Robin Blaser reminds us in his "Afterthoughts" that much of our current unease stems, not from too many differences, but from too few
The fire : collected essays of Robin Blaser by Robin Blaser( Book )
12 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 233 libraries worldwide
"Spanning four decades of meditation on the avant-garde in poetry, art, and philosophy, the essays collected in The Fire reveal Robin Blaser's strikingly fresh perspective on "New American" poets, deconstructive philosophies, current events, and the state of humanities now. His response to the cultural and political events of his time has been to construct a poetic voice that offers a singular perspective on a shareable world - and to pose that voice alongside others as a source of countermemory and potential agency. Conceived as conversations, these essays brilliantly reflect that ethos as they re-read the cultural events of the past fifty years."--Publisher description

Nota by Martin Corless-Smith( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
Dear Reader, take care of this book. It's important and amazing--a vast conversation and meditation--an investigation into the stupid symptom of the self in poetry and writing. I AM NO FREE AGENCY, the text tells us: terror for myself and those dear; stiff vein into a nether heart. ... A search for the self here undertakes a discovery of itself in our own time when political, social, and religious gridirons no longer hold on to us. --Robin Blaser
