Maya Deren, Joseph Cornell, Charles Olson: all of these artists discovered and established new means for expressing their experience through forms imbued with the original powers of myth, history, and ritual. In this, her first book, Jane Brakhage (now Jane Wodening) explored the lives of these three American heroes with sensitivity, intelligence, and compassion. Drawing from the traditions of King Arthur’s Court, she arrives at a vivid style all her own in these contemporary legends of boldness and creativity.
