Robert Crosson, Signs/ & Signals: The Daybooks of Robert Crosson

 

Edited by Guy Bennett and Paul Vangelisti, with an introduction by Guy Bennett
Co-published with The Archive for New Poetry, Mandeville Special Collections Library, University of California, San Diego

 

…what I was (am) doing in Daybook, is exactly what you say: “publishing” my own book, in pencil…which is not to say it’s hot-stuff, but what I daily do to make “sense” of what’s otherwise- “making a living”: which is what we all do anyway – . I guess that’s maybe (all) any poet can do?

 

Born in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania in 1929, Robert Crosson moved to California in 1944. He eventually settled in Los Angeles where he spent most of his life working as a carpenter, house painter, and professional actor. Crosson authored five volumes of poetry – Geographies, Abandoned Latitudes (with John Thomas and Paul Vangelisti), Calliope, The Blue Soprano, The Day Sam Goldwyn Stepped off the Train – and the chapbook In The Æthers of the Amazon. Crosson died in 2001.
