Instructions to the Double: Poems. Poetry, Tess Gallagher.

Instructions to the Double: Poems.

Port Townsend: Graywolf Press, 1976. First Printing of the First Edition. 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. Item #24443

Price: $395.00
