ISBN: 0819552119
Middletown, CT: Wesleyan University, 1988. First Edition. Hard Cover. The first edition hardcover of memoirs by poet David Ignatow. Laid in is a card "with compliments of the author" curiously from a different publisher (Atlantic - Little Brown) measuring approx. 4-1/4" x 3-1/2". Hand-written on the back of the card in black ink by Allen Ginsberg is a paragraph of Ginsberg's observations regarding David Ignatow & his poetry (approx. 100 words) - In Part: "On the American traditions of open verse form, Ignatow is a healthy transmitter of natural intelligence + grounded perception - intuitive, factual, realistic -eyes seeing what's in front of him. Most poetry, especially in recent closed forms, is idealistic daydreaming, egoism enchanted..." ) Perhaps Ginsberg wrote this for a dust jacket blurb or for an introduction for The One in the Many. The manuscript is believed to be unpublished. Book is in near mint condition, with only slight wear to edges of dj spine. A most one-of-a-kind item for serious aficionados of these poets. Near Mint / Near Mint. [Item #1165]
