Charles Olson: A Student Guide to the Maximus Poem

We’ve passed the 100th year of Charles Olson’s birth The Maximus Poemsand there have been major conferences reflecting on this important date.  I teach in the English Department at UC Berkeley and in conjunction with my class, I set up this web site primarily as a guide for individuals who wish to read The Maximus poems. The student journals and essays presented in this project provide an excellent guide for people attempting to read this difficult book-length work.
