About Theodore EnslinTheodore Enslin (March 25, 1925 – November 21, 2011) was an American poet associated with magazine Origin, edited by Cid Corman and his press which published his first book, The Work Proposed, in 1958. He is widely regarded as one of the most musical of American avant-garde poets. Enslin's major works were what he called Sequences and Long Workings, a form somewhere between the single long poem and the collection of related shorter poems. His majors volumes of poetry are To Come, to Have Become (1966), Forms 1-5 (1970-74); The Poems (1970); Etudes (1972); Views (1973); Synthesis 1-24 (1975); and Ranger (1978 and 1980), which centres on the destruction of Native American culture in the 16th century, but expands far beyond.
