Remembering today on the anniversary of  his birth, the poet Harold Norse (1916-2009).

See our extensive 2014 post (on the occasion of the publication of I Am Going To Fly Through Glass, his Selected Poems, lovingly edited by Todd Swindell) – here.

See also his web-site, the wonderfully-informative, crisp and comprehensive haroldnorse.com – here 

Here’s rare footage of the poet, speaking on the early influence of William Carlos Williams and on first meeting Allen (the full story of that encounter is descriptively conveyed in his 1989  Memoirs of A Bastard Angel )
