Cloth of the Tempest: Poems.
by Patchen, Kenneth.

Publisher Information:
Harper & Brothers,, New York:: 1943..

A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine lightly darkened, price-clipped dust jacket. This is one of 2000 copies. "Cloth of the Tempest" is as varied as Kenneth Patchen's moods and methods of expression. He offers love lyrics full of the warmth of life, moving commentaries on war and his experiments with poems-in-drawings-and-type which introduced a new medium. Patchen has something to say and he's not afraid to say it with power and sincerity. Patchen's biographer wrote that he "developed in his fabulous fables, love poems, and picture poems a deep yet modern mythology that conveys a sense of compassionate wonder amidst the world's violence." Along with his friend and peer Kenneth Rexroth, he was a central influence over the San Francisco Renaissance and the Beat Generation.
