Complete registryShow full item record
The poem 'Often I Am Permitted to Return to Meadow' opens Robert Duncan's The Opening oj the Field, where he tries to perform the olsonian 'composition by field', becoming involved in an adventure of acknoledgements through the poem itself. One of the most striking characteristics of his literary production is to link a word with a concrete connotation that remains with that value in his poetic and essayist work. This is what happens with 'meadow', in such a way that it gets its own development not only in its grammatical form but also in the theoretical and thematic aspects.
