Typecasting from the Grave

Post-Script: Here's one example of my friend's work, a poem titled "The Sugar Woods," scanned from his typewritten, hand-bound book "The High Place". The top portrait was a scan from his book, that itself was a photocopy of an original, hence the poor quality. I do hope to get more of his work scanned and posted here, in an ongoing series.

If you are in need of permanent file hosting for PDFs of Ward's books, I can offer hosting space on my server (munk.org, in constant operation since 1998, if you're worried about longevity), to which you can link how you like. (:

Interesting that you have his works preserved. Whenever I read of the demise of the printed word in exchange for temporary digital garbage I am reminded of H.G.Wells Time Machine where the Time Traveller discovers the future; people lounging around knowing and doing nothing and they HAVE NO BOOKS.

A nice poem, especially so since I do love maple syrup. I like the ghost poem in the back ground, too.

I like your term "ghost poem," it works so well within the context. And it's unavoidable when scanning material that's been typed on both sides.

Ted: your offer is very generous, I'll keep it in mind. I have yet to start the scanning process, however.
