Mad Pelynt And The Bullet

£19.99

Product description

First edition. 1940. This small book contains a collection of poems - ' these poems are the intense expressions of a personal crisis; they are not literary exercises. The mind that composed them was not concerned with verse forms or conformity with tradition, it was concerned only with the easing of its own pains and the problem of controlling what seemed uncontrollable.'
This copy is in good condition. Dustjacket good, if somewhat grubby with a series of numbers written on the back cover. The inside of the book is good and clean with only slight foxing.
