From the publisher: "This collection of interviews spans Harry Smith's long and influential life in American arts and letters. They cover a quarter-century, touching on the full range of Smith's activity as a groundbreaking experimental filmmaker, obsessive collector, folk music anthologist, visionary painter, student of Native American lore, anthropologist, cosmographer, alchemist, hermetic scholar, occultist, autodidact, classic American eccentric, and all-around explorer of the possibilities of human consciousness and creativity. Jordan Belson writes, "Think of the Self Speaking" is the next best thing to being with Harry himself, perhaps better, and undoubtably safer. The interviews are remarkably similar to his collage films. A brilliant mind unhinged." Includes an introduction by Allen Ginsberg.This edition has a Foreword by Hymenaeus Beta. Covers lightly rubbed at points, a hint of shelf rubbing, no marks to text. Thus a tight, clean near Fine copy. Item #70997
