David Southern (about the Dorn book) points out to me that:
Part of their blurb copy reads thus:
Along with Robert Creeley, Allen Ginsberg, Denise Levertov, Charles Olson, William Carlos Williams, and others, Edward Dorn taught at and became associated with the Black Mountain school in North Carolina.
I am reminded that I once saw your name among “prominent Black Mountain poets.” Denise Levertov certainly contributed to Black Mountain Review, but did she ever teach there? I am almost positive that Allen Ginsberg never set foot on the place and am doubtful that WCW did either. At this point, I’m not sure we will ever know, finally.
Clearly David’s research never went deep enough to find this documentary evidence from the period when WCW and AG jointly taught a class on Italian Cinema.
