Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------IMPERFECT THIRST by Galway Kinnell. Kinnell (When One Has Lived a Long Time Alone) launches his 12th book of poetry with a witty poem dedicated to "The Pen"---a pen which, "like the person who gets out of the truck, goes/ around to the rear, signals to the driver, and calls, 'C'mon/ back.'" After that beginning, nearly anyone would follow this writer into the past to his quiet father who "bent down out of the gloom like a god," and later, in another poem, step happily into an imagined future near "the idea of paradise." Kinnell's breadth in the volume astonishes: poems range from an expression of poetic resistance to the fashionable scholarly disinterment of language in "The Deconstruction of Emily Dickinson," to the delicate tableau he creates of a woman caring for her father in "Parkinson's Disease," to his gleefully erudite tribute to excrement in "Holy Shit." Primal themes---love, nature, mortality---emerge in newly compelling forms. In "Rapture," for example, conventional poetic language is abandoned for sensuality's purer rhythms: "Simile is useless." When the poet speaks intimately to us, his voice is unsurpassable. You are bidding on the stated Houghton First Edition from 1994. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.--and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find POETRY COLLECTIBLE. WANT TO SEE MORE?? COME VISIT MY STORE!
