Echoes. Robert Creeley.


ISBN: 0811212637
New York, NY: New Directions Publishing, 1994. First Edition. Hardcover. "...Robert Creeley continues to explore the limits and resonances, public and personal, of age. Indeed, the title itself, "Echoes," recurs throughout his poetry of the last two decades. Thus "Sonnets" speak out against the waste of human violence and dogmatism...while the book's closing sequence, "Roman Sketchbook," contemplates with wit and affection the measure of one's literal body in echoing time and place. Creeley as ever articulates the givens of life, its daily fact and possibility, with careful, concise invention." Robert Creeley's poetry has been internationally celebrated for its invaluable contribution to the American poetic idiom. In this later collection, the poet's talents are active as ever; as he continued to develop with time and a perennial dedication to his art. Book in very fine condition, substantially mint; some leftover glue from the publisher on the spine-edges of the boards, but it is certainly from the publisher and as-issued. Dust jacket in very fine condition with only slightest rubbing to back cover; minor bump-crease to bottom fine-edge of spine. Very Fine. [Item #2766]
