Nora's Roar

ISBN: 1887289119
Boulder, CO: Rodent Press, 1996. First Softcover Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Signed by Clayton Eshleman. A large-format chapbook-style volume with the title poem by Clayton Eshleman, the renowned poet, translator & educator who has long lived in Michigan. The poem is dedicated to the memory of Nora Jaffe (1928-1994), an artist who was a close friend of the poet & whose compelling illustrations grace several of his books, as here. Jaffe's life, friendship with the poet & death are the subject of this poem, a somber tour-de-force among his prolific output. As noted on the copyright page, this first trade softcover printing was published in February 1996. Also as noted, the beautiful endsheets for this production "...were designed and letterpress printed by Brad O'Sullivan on the Kavyayantra Press at the Naropa Institute" in Boulder, Colorado. The Institute (now Naropa University) is the home of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, founded by Allen Ginsberg & Anne Waldman. Eshleman has hand-signed his name on the title page. A very desirable Eshleman-Jaffe collectible. In very fine condition with only a tiny amount of short, faint creasing around stapled areas of spine, likely as issued; otherwise substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #2592]
