The Collected Poems.
by Patchen, Kenneth.
A Very Good plus copy with a previous owner inscription on the flyleaf in a Near Fine price clipped dust jacket. Kenneth Patchen was a powerful, angry voice that could sing some of the most beautiful love poems of the past century. His art was violent and primitive; usually he incorporated poetry into his painting. His strongest influence was William Blake, e.e. cummings was a mentor. He moved easily among the San Francisco poets, a contemporary of Lawrence Ferlinghetti of the famed City Lights Book Store. He was truly a poet's poet and never compromised his art.
