Hugo, Richard.
A Run of Jacks.
A Fine copy with a touch of rubbing to the board edges in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Author's First Book. Richard Hugo was a poet of the Pacific Northwest, yet his renown attests to a stature greater than that of most "regional" poets. He is noted for the tight, rhythmic control of his language and lines and for the sharp sense of place evoked in his poems. Hugo's images are urgent and compelling; he imbues the many minute or seemingly irrelevant details found in his poems with a subtle significance, thereby creating a tension between the particular and the universal. This tension is considered central to Hugo's most powerful poems. In his poems Hugo reflected as much upon the internal region of the individual as on the external region of the natural world, and he considered these two deeply interconnected.

Bukowski, Charles.
Screams From the Balcony. Selected Letters 1960-1970.
A Fine copy in a Fine mylar dust jacket. 1/326 copies Signed by Bukowski with a Bukowski seriagraph print. This collection of letters chronicles Bukowski's life from his first days as a poet having meager success through his resignation from his postal job to pursue writing as his sole source of income. In between, the letters reveal in raw and uncensored fashion how a hard-drinking, hard-living man followed his own vision of poetic truth and artistic integrity. Earlier letters are written to the few editors, poets and admirers who had become aware of Bukowski's wild poetry. In them, we see the 40-year-old author struggling to make ends meet through an alcoholic stupor of which he is neither ashamed nor apologetic. We read of his thrill as his first book appears-- directly in the aftermath of the assassination of JFK. Even as his fame grows and his friends are convinced that he has made it, Bukowski remains in ill health and financial insecurity. The honesty, humor and lack of pretension in these letters make them a must for Bukowski fans and an engaging read for anyone interested in literary lives. Reproductions of letters and an afterword by Cooney round out the volume nicely.

[Poetry] Gallagher, Tess.
Instructions to the Double: Poems.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. 1/150 cloth copies. This is Gallagher's first book. This first commercial collection of Gallagher's poetry serves to, very cleverly and even handedly, disguise, or vale, the soul of writer. Later the work begins to unfold its complexity and came to life right out of the page. The balanced, well tempered blending of the metaphorical and the concrete and a fairly consistant cadence, the ability to play with syntax and meaning, twisting words and sentences into unpredictable and surprising contortions only enhance the necessary meaning of the work and give it life in the minds eye where all good poetry is born. Tess is soft, sweater soft, but don't let that fool you. She is solid, like a rock. A remarkable woman.

Traveling Through the Dark: Poems.
A Near Fine copy with a previous owner's name on the flyleaf in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. Laid-in is a single sheet announcing Stafford's appearance in San Francisco for a series of readings (where this copy was purchased). Stafford's Second Trade Book. Traveling Through the Dark, was published when Stafford was forty-eight. and in 1963 it won the National Book Award. Stafford’s poems are often deceptively simple. Like Robert Frost’s, however, they reveal a distinctive and complex vision upon closer examination. James Dickey, writing in his book Babel to Byzantium, notes that Stafford’s “natural mode of speech is a gentle, mystical, half-mocking and highly personal daydreaming about the western United States.”

Patchen is a fabulist, a humorist (in a some what dark vein), a surrealist, and a dedicated experimentalist who refuses to be categorized. These fables reflect the myriad aspects of his talent fresh approach to the written word.

This is one of Bukowski 's better collections of poetry from his mid-period.

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

Green with Beasts: Poems.
A Near Fine copy in Near Fine dust jacket with light moisture spotting to the front cover a touch of sunning to the edges. Merwin's early subjects were frequently tied to mythological or legendary themes, while many of his poems featured animals. In the mid-fifties, he joined the circle of writers that surrounded Robert Lowell and Merwin decided to seek a more American vernacular. He turned inward, toward more introspective and personal subjects. At this time he also began experimenting with form and irregular metrics. This is Merwin's third book of poetry printed from the UK plates.

Outlaw of the Lowest Planet: Poems. Selected and Introduced by David Gascoyne.
A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, unclipped edge-darkened dust jacket. There was no comparable US edition of this selection of Patchen's poems. A writer for the New York Times Book Review wrote that in Kenneth Patchen "there is the voice of anger—outspoken rage against the forces of hypocrisy and injustice in our world. Patchen sees man as a creature of crime and violence, a fallen angel who is haunted by all the horrors of the natural world, and who still continues to kill his own kind: 'Humanity is a good thing. Perhaps we can arrange the murder of a sizable number of people to save it.'"

[Poetry & Prose] Herbert, Zbigniew.
The Collected Poems 1956-1998. The Collected Prose 1948-1998. Both Volumes Translated and Edited by Alissa Valles. Two Volu
Fine tight unread copies in Fine bright unclipped dust jackets. These two volumes bring together Herbert's collected poetry and prose. The poetry volume includes: Chords of Light, Hermes, Dog and Star, Study of the Object, Inscription, Mr. Cogito, Report from a Besieged City, Elegy for the Departure, Rovigo and Epilogue to a Storm. The prose volume includes his four books of nonfiction including: Labryinth on the Sea, Still Life with a Bridle, The King of the Ants, and Barbarian in the Garden. Herbert was a Polish poet, essayist, drama writer and moralist, a member of the Polish resistance movement, Home Army (AK), during World War II. He is one of the best known and the most translated post-war Polish writers. While he was first published in the 1950s (a volume titled String of light was issued in 1956), soon after he voluntarily ceased submitting most of his works to official Polish government publications. He resumed publication in the 1980s, initially in the underground press. Although Herbert's purpose as a poet and the subjects of his writing are serious, he mixes humor and satire effectively. "The most distinctive quality of Herbert's imagination," Laurence Lieberman writes in Poetry, "is his power to invest impish fantasy, mischievously tender nonsense, with the highest seriousness. His humorous fantasy is the armor of a superlatively healthy mind staving off political oppression. Fantasy is an instrument of survival: it is the chief weapon in a poetry arsenal which serves as a caretaker for the individual identity, a bulwark against the mental slavery of the totalitarian church and state."

Making Certain It Goes On: The Collected Poems.
A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, price clipped dust jacket. This increasingly uncommon collection of Hugo's published poetry also contains 22 new poems not previously collected. 456 pages, indexed. This posthumously published book of Hugo's collected poetry evinces that Hugo's poems are marked by crisp, gorgeous images of nature that often stand in contrast to his own depression, loneliness, and alcoholism. Although almost always written in free verse, his poems have a strong sense of rhythm that often echoes iambic meters. He also wrote of large number of informal epistolary poems at a time when that form was unfashionable. Primarily a regionalist, Hugo's work reflects the economic depression of the Northwest, particularly Montana.

Alexie, Sherman.
First Indian on the Moon: Poems.
A Fine tight copy without dust jacket as issued. This is one of only 500 Hardcover copies issued. Working from a carefully developed understanding of his place in an oppressed culture, he focuses on the need to tear down obstacles before nature tears them down. Fire is therefore a central metaphor: a sister and brother-in-law killed, a burnt hand, cars aflame. Tongue in cheek, Alexie inserts images from popular songs and movies, and catalogues aspects of traditional reservation life that have been sacrificed in America's melting pot. Alexie renews the nearly forgotten sense of language equaling power. And the language in these sequential works is flawless, each section picking up from and expanding upon the previous one, poetry and prose working naturally together.

The title, The Back Country, has three major associations; wilderness. the "backward" countries, and the “back country" of the mind with its levels of being in the unconscious.

Pessoa, Fernando; Mac Adam, Alfred (translator).
The Book of Disquiet.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine, bright unclipped dust jacket. Fernando Pessoa was many writers in one. He attributed his prolific writings to a wide range of alternate selves, each of which had a distinct biography, ideology. and horoscope. When he died in 935, Pessoa left behind a trunk filled with unfinished and unpublished writings, among which were the remarkable pages that make up his posthumous masterpiece, The Book of Disquiet, an astonishing work that, in George Steiner's words, "gives to Lisbon the haunting spell of Joyce's Dublin or Kafka's Prague." Published for the first time some fifty years after his death, this unique collection of short, aphoristic paragraphs comprises the "autobiography" of Bernardo Soares, one of Pessoa's alternate selves. Part intimate diary, part prose poetry, part descriptive narrative, captivatingly translated by Richard Zenith, The Book of Disquiet is considered one of the greatest works of the twentieth century.

Passions and Impressions is both a sequel to and an enlargement of Neruda's Memoirs, recording a lifetime of travel, of friendships and enmities, of exile and homecoming, of loss and discovery, and of history both public and personal. Above all, it is a testament to Neruda's love for Chile-for its citizens, its flora and fauna, its national identity. His abiding devotion pervades these notes on a life fully lived.
