Another Collected by Creeley that is very manageable, practical and delight. Published by the University of California Press in 1989, this book is a comprehensive collection of essays in the broadest sense of the word. Divided into five sections, I) Heroes/Elders II) The Company III) The Writing Life IV) Artists V) Autobiography and Poetics, the 'essays' range from casual notes to forewords to autobiographical sketches to longer pieces. But the majority of the 150 essays in this near 600 page book are short, averaging 4 pages each. It once occurred to me that Creeley rarely wrote essays about people he didn't know personally, and looking over the table of contents, that seems to be so.
