Gnomic Verses

Canary Islands, Spain: Zasterle Press, 1991. Numbered Limited First Edition. Softcover. (427/500 Numbered Copies). "Creeley's poems engage the past and the present with a sustained attentiveness, even as they engage us as readers. Welling with emotion while they eschew sentimentality, the poems are self-contained...Privileged are we who lend our ears." (Forrest Gander, "The Boston Review"). Here as in elsewhere in Creeley's sizable published output, we find the eccentric, personal voice of Robert Creeley bellowing in its distinguished baritone growl--a voice William Carlos Williams once said contained "...the subtlest ear for measure..." Book in fine condition with moderate rubbing to front, back covers; slight shelf-wear throughout same; bumps to all corners esp. top left corner of front cover; similar bumps to top right, top left corner of back cover; bump crease to bottom fine-edge of back cover at center; price-tag sticker remnants visible on top right-hand corner of back cover. Fine. [Item #2730]
