San Francisco, CA: City Lights Books, 2017 (1962). First Edition Thus. Softcover. "First published by City Lights in 1962, 'Selected Poems of Malcolm Lowry' is the only comprehensive selection of his poetry to be published in the U.S., and it remains the perfect introduction to his extensive poetic canon. Edited by Lowry's good friend, renowned Canadian poet Earle A. Birney, with the assistance of his widow, Margerie Lowry, the selection includes poems written during Lowry's stay in Mexico, many of which are closely related to his landmark novel, "Under the Volcano." (from back cover). As he relates in his short introduction, Ferlinghetti sailed to Vancouver, B.C. to visit the keeper of Lowry's manuscripts, poet Earle Birney, and talk Birney into letting him publish a selection of Lowry's poetry. Ferlinghetti said he "never regretted" going to fetch this manuscript, "...though they were greeted with a loud silence in the world press." In 2017, City Lights Books decided to republish the book as initially issued with additional notes on Lowry and his poems by Ferlinghetti and Earle Birney. The result is this fine book of verse, rightfully reissued. Book in very fine condition; a few slight marks on front cover, but they are as issued. Very Fine-As New. [Item #2942]
