A Letter from Robert Creeley Colin Still
Film-maker Colin Still of Optic Nerve recently bought two unpublished airmail letters from Robert Creeley to the sound recordist and record producer Fred Hunter, whose 1960s Stream records released vinyl recordings of Tom Raworth, Ed Dorn, Robert Duncan, Lee Harwood, Anselm Hollo, Basil Bunting, and Stuart Montgomery. The two paragraphs below, in which Creeley proposes some reading matter & refers enthusiastically to Charles Tomlinson, are from a letter sent from Placitas, New Mexico on 8 July 1963.
