Within the Curtilage

Dover, DE: Bottle of Smoke Press, 2008. First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Signed by Richard Krech to Legendary Literary Outlaw, Charles Plymell. "Within the Curtilage" is a late-period work from the career of Richard Krech, renegade-sympathizer and poet whose first literary affiliations included the likes of Cleveland poet and publisher d.a.levy, who published Krech's "We Are On the Verge of Ecstasy" when Krech was still a Berkeley, CA-area poet and magazine editor. "He published a poetry magazine, The Avalanche, which lasted five issues. Along with the The Avalanche, Krech published several chapbooks under his Undermine Press imprint and sponsored weekly poetry readings at a Telegraph Avenue bookstore in Berkeley from 1966 to 1969. His poetry appeared in various small magazines around the country including Work (from John Sinclair's Artists Workshop Press in Detroit), Ole, Manhattan Review, City Light's Journal for the Protection of all Beings, and Kauri. During that time, and afterwards, he wrote for the underground press, including the Berkeley Barb, the San Francisco Express Times, the Seattle Helix and other publications." (Big Bridge Magazine, Richard Krech Bio and Bibliography, N/D). A little-known figure in the rebel literary canon, Krech is a figure whose associations & little-known wit & talent will draw readers in the years to come. Signed by Richard Krech to legendary literary outlaw Charles Plymell. Signature reads: "Charles, / come & visit / sometime / Richard / 3/25/10." Book in very fine condition with only the slightest shelf-wear to fine-edges, but is virtually as new. Very Fine. [Item #3593]
