Autumn Journal A Poem by Louis MacNeice

£29.99

Product description

Written between August and December 1938, Autumn Journal is still considered one of the most valuable and moving testaments of living through the thirties, by a young writer. It is a record of the author's emotional and intellectual experiences during those months, the trivia of everyday living set against the events of the world outside; the settlement in Munich and slow defeat in Spain.
This is the fourth impression, published in 1945.
A thin volume, bound in tan cloth with gilt lettering to the spine. Although there is some foxing on text block edges and free end papers , also slight creasing from the ffep to page 8 and the name of a previous owner, written neatly in ink on ffep, all text is clear and legible and the book is in very good condition overall..

"He completely seizes the atmosphere of the year of Munich. He tolls the knell of the political thirties with melancholy triumph.' Cyril Connolly
