Nevertheless

By: Moore, Marianne

Price: $225.00

Edition: 1st Edition

Seller ID: cup38

Condition: Very Good


Includes a correction in Ms. Moore's hand on p.12. First ed. first state. Moore was widely recognized for her work; among her many honors were the Bollingen prize, the National Book Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. She wrote with the freedom characteristic of the other modernist poets, often incorporating quotes from other sources into the text, yet her use of language was always extraordinarily condensed and precise, capable of suggesting a variety of ideas and associations within a single, compact image. She was particularly fond of animals, and much of her imagery is drawn from the natural wo... View more info

The Fire Fetched Down

By: Bradley, George

Price: $15.00

Publisher: NY, Knopf: 1996

Edition: 1st Edition

Inscription: Signed by Author(s)

Seller ID: 11mb

ISBN: 0679446206

Condition: As New


As up-to-date as the current cosmography, as steeped in tradition as ancient agriculture, George Bradley's The Fire Fetched Down overflows with energy, humor, and intellectual curiosity. Readers will find the aesthetic detachment and technical proficiency they have come to expect of Bradley's work, but they will discover other, more immediate attractions as well. The poet sounds new notes in this book, among them the bemused intimacy of "Ode to Absent-Mindedness" and the uneasy excursion of "Frug Macabre". From lyric outburst to contemplative essay, from myths of origin to pos... View more info

Condition: As New


Laurie Sheck interweaves the contemporary with the mythic, creating a realm in which such things as radios, skyscrapers, expressways, and mannequins are at once familiar and strange; immediate, yet tinged with the light of distance and myth. It is a realm where faces on a television newscast disappear "into the undertow / of hunger for the next thing and the next," and mannequins "stand in their angelic armor." Placed at intervals throughout these pages is a series of poems entitled "From The Book of Persephone," poems that explore the underworld through a fractured con... View more info
