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 in whose thinking was combined meditations on Melville, the myths of the Egyptians and other ancient cultures, and the experiments of the modernist tradition. He taught briefly at Black Mountain College, and was at times close with Charles Olson among other modern poets and writers of the mid and later half of the 20th century. Josephine Herbst was a radical communist writer known for her "proletarian" novels, as well as her friendships with modernists like William Carlos Williams and Ernest Hemingway.
