Mirrors. Robert Creeley.


New York, NY: New Directions Publishing, 1983. First Trade Softcover Edition. Softcover. "Mirrors" is a 1983 publication from Robert Creeley that carries all the strength of his earlier books and compounds the mastery their completion yielded to form yet another sleeper classic in his canonized oeuvre. One of the best pieces in the collection, "Buffalo Evening," echoes the sort of imagistic potency he learned from William Carlos Williams some 25+ years before this book appeared and his furthered evolution of Williams' cardinal innovations. Creeley is always more than meets the eye & ear, and it takes an intellect even a fourth of the size of Creeley's to realize this--which makes his critics and detractors furious, and his supporters ardent and committed. From the library of Ken & Ann Mikolowski, close friends of Robert Creeley & founders of Detroit's visionary "Alternative Press," publishers of many Beat/New York School/Black Mountain-related authors. Book in fine condition with minute shelf-wear & slight rubbing throughout front, back covers; minute bumps to top right, bottom right corners of front cover; one 3 cm gauge near center-middle of front cover; scattered slight nicks & scuffs to back cover. Fine. [Item #2770]
