New York, NY: New Directions Publishing Corporation, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed by Lawrence Ferlinghetti. " "Do you enjoy your own mind? Maxims and legends of total reality, echoing and reechoing there?" asks Lawrence Ferlinghetti in discussing this, his seventh book of verse. "If we could only decipher it....Visual beatitudes, landscapes of living and dying flashed upon the dark screen...." The poems in Who Are We Now?, truly "landscapes of living," are naturally attempts to decipher that reality..." (from front flap) A now-classic mid-career collection of poems by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, among the foremost living original members of the Beat Generation/ San Francisco Renaissance as poet, publisher & proprietor of his iconic City Lights Bookstore, still with us as of this writing at age 101! This volume concludes with one of Ferlinghetti's undisputed masterworks, "Populist Manifesto." Who Are We Now? made a most important statement to the San Francisco literary scene and the surrounding literary community at large. On blank front endpaper, Ferlinghetti has hand-written his signature, last name only as often customary, in bold black felt-tip ink. A production of James Laughlin's brave & legendary New Directions imprint. First hardcover edition, published simultaneously with a softcover edition. An essential Ferlinghetti collectible, enriched by his signature.
