Brooklyn, NY: Trobar, 1961. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. Signed by Clayton Eshleman & Diane Wakoski. Founded in 1960 by George Economou and Robert & Joan Kelly, Trobar was largely an outlet to disseminate & publicize what Jerome Rothenberg referred to as "Deep Image" poetry. "Sometimes called the “deep image” poets...[they] sought spiritual intensity and transcendence of the self rather than confessional immediacy. Their work was influenced by the poetry of Spanish and Latin American writers such as Federico García Lorca, Juan Ramón Jiménez, César Vallejo, and Pablo Neruda, especially their surreal association of images, as well as by the “greenhouse poems” (1946–48) and the later meditative poetry of Theodore Roethke, with their deep feeling for nature as a vehicle of spiritual transformation." (Dickstein, Blair, Giles: "Encyclopedia Britannica"). This issue of Trobar wields a notable list of names, including the celebrated translator of Surrealist texts, Michael Benedikt, Black Mountain associates Paul Blackburn & Edward Dorn, San Francisco Renaissance poet Robert Duncan, Guggenheim Fellow & National Book Award winner Clayton Eshleman, translator & poet Jerome Rothenberg, and poet Diane Wakoski, among others. Signed by two of the poets published in this issue, Clayton Eshleman & Diane Wakoski. Eshleman's signature appears in full on title page beside his name; Wakoski's signature appears as "Diane" with playful, brief doodling accentuating the signature. Journal in good condition with rubbing to front, back covers; slight spotting, minor yellowing to same esp. near spine-edge of front, back covers; chipping to area around top staple; significant rusting & bleeding to staples. Good. [Item #2718]
