In Cold Hell in Thicket
Palma de Mallorca: Divers Press / Origin, 1953. First Edition. Small square octavo (21cm x 18cm). Issued as Origin 8. Original plain wrappers in patterned, printed dustjacket; unpaged [63pp]. Inscribed by Olson on front endpaper: "for Ben & Bernarda Shahn / with love / Charles Olson," undated. Dustwrapper and endpapers toned and foxed, else Very Good. "Charles Olson" hand-lettered on spine, probably in either Ben or Bernarda's hand. & & A notable association copy of a major Olson collection. Olson and Shahn met as co-workers at the Office of War Information in WWII, where they collaborated on Olson's first published book, a pamphlet titled Spanish Speaking Americans in the War. In 1951, Olson invited Shahn onto the faculty of Black Mountain College, where Ben and Bernarda spent a summer teaching painting and graphic arts; among the Shahns' students were Robert Rauschenberg, Suzi Gablik and Francine du Plessix Gray (who quickly, perhaps wisely, switched to studying poetry with Olson).
