Tyrannus Nix? Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

Tyrannus Nix?

New York, NY: New Directions Publishing, 1969. First Edition. Softcover. Published in 1969, Ferlinghetti's politically-charged populist hymn was yet another audacious stab into the heart of military-industrial complex America and its corrupt and powerful perpetrators. With the text set in Ferlinghetti's own hand, "Tyrannus Nix" provides a poignant, era-specific glance at the backstage debauchery that has poisoned the American political process in a way that curiously echoes our current era. "Tyrannus Nix?" is Ferlinghetti "blowing as deep as he wants to blow" in the words of Jack Kerouac--rapid, roaring, and wholly unfettered. A rare copy of an inarguable Ferlinghetti classic. In very fine condition with only very light rubbing and browning to front, back covers and spine; short, faint horizontal crease at upper right of front cover; tiny bump-creases at all corners of front, back covers. Interior very fine. Very Fine. [Item #2531]
