This poster was created for a poetry reading by Edward Dahlberg and Josephine Herbst at the Living Theatre. Edward Dahlberg was an American novelist and essayist whose work intertwined meditations on Melville, the myths of the Egyptians and other ancient cultures, and the experiments of the modernist tradition. He also taught briefly at Black Mountain College. Josephine Herbst was an itinerant radical communist writer known for her proletarian novels, propaganda, and reportage of the flashpoints in the pre-war breakdown of capitalist society: her travels in the 20s and 30s took her around the world covering strikes, insurgencies, and military conflicts.
