Outlaw of the Lowest Planet: Poems. Selected and Introduced by David Gascoyne.

London: Grey Walls, 1946. First Printing of the First UK Edition. 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.'" Item #24840
