Gregor, David.
Variations on All the Perfect Things: Poems.
New in wraps. First Paperback edition. There was a hardcover signed limited of 100 copies. Signed by the author. From waiting in plastic chairs, to putting a brother in a clothes dryer, blue Parisian rooms, to the sun shining on a Spanish onion field, from the reflection of dying Emperor Tong to a man in a Los Angeles coffee shop worried about his soul--these poems are micro-stories illuminating the world without and the world within.

[Poetry] Graham, Jorie.
The Errancy: Poems.
A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. In these poems Jorie Graham approaches a number of numinous characters, each an embodiment of sexual, emotional, political or spiritual desire -- desire seeking its place in an age of betrayed values, where dreaming has been rubbed thin by reason, frayed by the speed of facts. Error is explored as the heroic form of finding one's way--a purposeful wandering toward truth, a pilgrimage in which the heart's longing is guide. Lovers celebrate the body; angels deliver celestial warnings. Sacred and spiritual, celestial and corporeal, coexist.

[Poetry] Heaney, Seamus.
Station Island: Poetry.
A Very Good tight copy with a small damp stain to the rear board in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. The title poem of this collection, set on an Irish island, tells of a pilgrim on an inner journey that leads him back into the world that formed him, and then forward to face the crises of the present. Writing in The Washington Post Book World, Hugh Kenner called the narrative sequence in Seamus Heaney's Station Island "as fine a long poem as we've had in fifty years." Heaney draws on the culture of his native Ireland for this collection. Included are short lyrical verses, a long poem in which Heaney confronts ghosts from his past, and a piece about seventh century Ulster King Sweeney.

[Poetry] Service, Robert.
The Spell of the Yukon and Other Verses.
A Very Good copy in green cloth binding with rubbing to the gilt lettering on the front cover; the spine has lost all of the letting. Robert Service wrote in the golden years of the Klondike--of the rough and ready men, and women just as tough. No-one in Robert's world (real or imagined) minced words or had any self-consciousness about them. It was live and let live and sometimes kill or be killed. "The Spell of the Yukon, and Other Poems" reflects those times. Reading Service's poems transports us back to that frozen place in nature when it was literally every man and every woman for him/herself. Cold cabins, with hoarfrost clinging to the inside rafters, unwashed masses in itchy long-johns struggling out of bed on an arctic day, and the beauty of the lilies living side by side with a trapper's two-timing woman getting her just desserts. Robert Service touches the heart and soul of the rough and raw Klondike in the early 1900's, showing us the emotions and colors from inky black to pure gold.

Bukowski, Charles.
Beerspit Night and Cursing: The Correspondence of Charles Bukowski and Sheri Martinelli, 1960-1967.
A Fine, unread copy in paperback wraps. While Bukowski needs no special introduction, his correspondent in this collection of letters may not be as well known. Sheri Martinelli was a small press editor (Anagogic & Paideumic) , protegee of Anais Nin, muse and mistress of Ezra Pound, friend of Charlie Parker, and admired by Marlon Brando and the Beat writers. It is with this background that her correspondence with Bukowski rises above the level of pedestrian. The bulk of these letters were written in the first year of their friendship in 1962 then trailed off until they ended in 1967. The letters cover the personal as well as the topics of art and writing. 380 pages.

[Charles Bukowski] Harrison, Russell.
Against the American Dream : Essays on Charles Bukowski.
A Fine, tight unread copy. For Russell Harrison, Charles Bukowski was a "social lyricist" a proletarian poet who saw life-on-the-job in the United States as deadening, demoralizing, yet also the stuff of art. In this collection of essays on Bukowski's poetry and fiction, Harrison is at his most original when tracing influences on the artist's work (from the Surrealists to Jackie Gleason) and when offering us Buk as the anti-Ben Franklin (that is, as the man who defined success as refusing the American Dream). Harrison offers up the first extensive in-depth critical assessment of the literary efforts of Bukowski.

Dunn, Stephen.
Walking Light: Essays and Memoirs.
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. In this collection, Dunn blends his thoughts about poetry with musings about his own early experience. Five essays explore the mysteries of composition, the problems and latitudes the poet faces, and the ways in which poetry confers value. The rest are essay-memoirs, touching upon such diverse subjects as basketball, gambling, storytelling, and silence. Though anecdotal, each memoir relates to the poetic mentality. How one walks in a dangerous neighborhood can be analogous to how one moves in a poem. And if one survives the silence of shyness, Dunn convinces us, it can be a storehouse of the unspoken. The title is derived from William Meredith's "Crossing Over." Meredith's speaker, on an ice floe in the middle of a river, says, "I love this fool's walk./ The thing we have to learn is how to walk light."

[Poetry] Olds, Sharon.
The Unswept Room: Poems.
A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Thids collection of poems tprovides a startling energy of language and counterpoint, and a moving, elegiac tone shot through with humor. From poems that erupt out of history and childhood to those that embody the nurturing of a new generation of children and the transformative power of marital love, Olds takes risks, writing boldly of physical, emotional, and spiritual sensations that are seldom the stuff of poetry. These are poems that strike for the heart, as Sharon Olds captures our imagination with unexpected wordplay, sprung rhythms, and the disquieting revelations of ordinary life.

Poems: The Weight of Oranges, Miner's Pond, Skin Divers.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Although The Weight of Oranges (1986), and Miner's Pond (1991) were published separately, these two books, along with Skin Divers, a collection of Michaels's newest work, were written as companion volumes. Poems brings all three books together for the first time, creating for American readers a wonderful introduction to Anne Michaels's poetry. Meditative and insightful, powerful and heart-moving, these are poems that, as Michael Ondaatje has written, "go way beyond games or fashion or politics . . . They represent the human being entire."

[Poetry Anthology] .
City Lights Pocket Poets Anthology. Edited by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
A Fine copy in illustrated hardcover binding. Lawrence Ferlinghetti founded the City Lights publishing house in 1955, launching the press with his now legendary Pocket Poets Series. First in the series was Pictures of the Gone World—and within a year, he had brought out two more volumes, translations by Kenneth Rexroth and then, poems by Kenneth Patchen. But it was the success and scandal of Number Four, Howl & Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg (1956), that put City Lights on the map, positioning the Pocket Poets Series at the forefront of the literary counterculture.A landmark retrospective this edition provides an invaluable distillation of the energetic, iconoclastic and still fresh body of work represented in the ongoing series. Ferlinghetti has selected a handful of poems from each of the sixty volumes, including the work of Ginsberg, Kerouac, Corso, Pasolini, Voznesensky, Prévert, Mayakovsky, Cortázar, O'Hara, Ponsot, Levertov, di Prima, Duncan, Lamantia, Lowry, and more, all of the Pocket Poets Series' innovative, influential, and often ground-breaking American and international poets.

[Poetry] Eliot, T.S.
The Waste Land and Other Poems.
A Near Fine copy with a previous owner name on the title page in Near Fine dust jacket. While recovering from a mental collapse in a Swiss sanitarium in 1921, T. S. Eliot finished what became the definitive poem of the modern condition, one that still casts a large and ominous shadow over twentieth-century poetry. Built upon the imagery of the Grail legend, the Fisher King, and ancient fertility cults, “The Waste Land” is both a poetic diagnosis of an ailing civilization and a desperate quest for spiritual renewal. Through pastiche and collage Eliot unfolds a nightmarish landscape of sexual disorder and spiritual desolation, inhabited by the voice (literary, historical, mythic, contemporary) of an unconscious that is at turns deeply personal and culturally collective. This edition includes “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” ““Gerontion,” and more.
