These poems were some of the first I put on-line, initially as text retrievable by ftp and gopher in the days before the web was available. I haven't done much to update the format since then. Hence they may suggest an early period of web publication, and their plainnes in format seems appropriate to the plainness of Olson's poetry. This was one of the first books I printed from inexpensive diffusion transfer plates, so there seems to be a natural sympathy and marking of stages on the road from mimeo through offset to the web.
