Olson/Still: Crossroad

by Robert Gibbons
 
Olson/Still: Crossroad is a book of prose pieces on the similarities and distinctions between art in paint by Clyfford Still, and art in language by Charles Olson. The vertical in both is a matter of digging and penetration, not only into the matter of the work, but that of the self.

Meet the Author

Robert Gibbons' work transcends genres. Living body writing, what difference, if Truth comes out? And gives readers pleasure. Both Guy Davenport and Marjorie Perloff compared his work to Rimbaud's. Sam Hamill wrote, “Anyone familiar with Thelonius Monk's music cannot help but feel the quirky syncopations of Gibbons' mind fitting perfectly with those of the pianist.” At sixty-five years old, he's still walking around the waterfront taking in the world, or at the desk in the backroom writing, often peering underneath for the Feminine, the Voice of Silence, image of the Hidden, embodiment of Beauty, signature of Peace, source of Love, and so on.
