Inside the Trojan Horse

San Francisco, CA: Don't Call it Frisco Press, 1988. First Edition. Softcover. In 1988, Don't Call it Frisco Press released "Inside the Trojan Horse," a slim softcover pocket poets-style volume compiling a total of 4 of Lawrence Ferlinghetti's most lauded pieces from his "All Over the Obscene Boundaries" and "Endless Life" collections. What marks this as an essential tome in the Ferlinghetti oeuvre is the inclusion of a lecture he gave as the Alvin Fine lecture at San Francisco State University on April 6, 1987. The Alvin Fine lecture is an annual lecture given in a commemorative spirit honoring Rabbi Alvin Fine, who was a tenacious activist for the Civil Rights Movement and brought Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Maya Angelo to San Francisco to speak during the dawn of the movement. Ferlinghetti's lecture, "Inside the Trojan Horse" is pure Ferlinghetti, interweaving poetry, the arts, humanist concerns and the anarchist question into a neatly-rib boned thought-provoking gift for the student of social history and the dedicated Ferlinghetti reader. An uncommon, overlooked volume from the inimitable Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Book in very fine condition with only slight spotting to front cover and minor rubbing to front, back cover; slight bump on fine-edge of back cover. Very Fine. [Item #2625]
