Memory Gardens

ISBN: 0811209733
New York, NY: New Directions Publishing, 1986. First Edition. Hardcover. Celebrated & acclaimed author Joyce Carol Oates said of Robert Creeley: "Creeley is absolutely mesmerizing in his ability to suspend and to define the passage of thought, the process of experience in all its ironic, inexorable sadness. No poetic theories are required to support such art; it achieves its own permanence by relating at once to our own groping, semi-articulate wonder." (back flap) In "Memory Gardens," Robert Creeley fulfills the exuberant promise intimated by Oates' enthusiastic praise by providing a book of paramount excellence and achievement, one of the finest in his catalogue. Book in very fine condition with only slightest chipping to top right-hand corner of recto board; small blotted ink stain to text block at bottom-center that runs through entire length of pages until section four, "A Calendar." Dust jacket in fine condition with uniform slight rubbing throughout; outward bends & slight shelf-wear to top, bottom fine edges of front cover; slight shelf-wear to top, bottom fine-edges of back cover; similar aforementioned ink-blotting on center-bottom fine-edge of back flap. Very Fine / fine. [Item #2768]
