Landis Everson was an inner member of the Berkeley Renaissance of the
late 1940s, the fourth intimate of the famed Spicer-Duncan-Blaser
circle. To Jack Spicer he was a myth and a god. To Robert Duncan he
was the Poet King. John Ashbery admired his poetry in New York in the
early 1950s, and published selections in Locus Solus in 1962
(Everson's last appearance in print until now!). In 1960 Everson
participated in a pivotal three-poet weekly Sunday poetry group with
Spicer and Blaser in San Francisco. While Spicer was writing Homage to
Creeley, Everson was composing Postcard from Eden and The Little
Ghosts I Played With, two great sequences which now appear in print
for the first time in Fulcrum 3, in The Berkeley Renaissance, edited
by Ben Mazer. Fulcrum is proud to present Landis Everson's first
public and print appearances in over forty years.
