Rat Jelly & Other Poems 1963-1978.

London: Marion Boyars, 1980. First Printing of the First UK Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. This copy is signed by Ondaatje on the title page. This omnibus collection of Ondaatje's early poetry brings together selections from "The Dainty Monsters," "Rat Jelly," and "Pig Glass." Ondaatje's poetry provides a glimpse into a fascinating private world where images of horror are held at arm's length like the Medusa's head, to be viewed through eccentric mirrors and prisms. The poems aim at mystery rather than explicitness providing Ondaatje to move beyond facts to myths and truths. Item #22859
