Bounded and Unbounded Field Functions in Atkins and Olson
Author:Tyrone Williams    Time:2019-07-10    Click:

This essay discusses the poetry and poetics of Charles Olson and Russell Atkins, two figures whose theories of poetics and literary practices are not customarily addressed in relation to each other. This potentially disputatious comparison is largely oriented towards Atkins’s biography. Still, this text is less an argument than a series of interrogatives posed in the indicative voice, a tribute to the sustained insistence on continuity across barriers (linguistic, grammatical, and otherwise) found in the poetics and poetry of both writers. These questions raised are worth further pursuing.
