Santa Barbara, CA: Black Sparrow Press, 1980. Limited First Edition. Hardcover. "Of course, seeing blurred or seeing double is no help to clarity of vision; if we want to see (D.H.) Lawrence as in himself he really is, it will not be to Henry Miller that we turn for help. But most readers of these Notes today will be as interested in Miller as in Lawrence, and so the blurring of the line between them here will be no hindrance to our pleasure. What remains for us is a lively piece of Henry Miller's critical-creative writing." (from Introduction by Seamus Cooney, pg. 12) A critical study by Henry Miller (1891-1980), the great American writer & artist whose earlier works were an influential precedent for the Beat Generation, especially Founding Father Jack Kerouac. The subject of this study is the novel Aaron's Rod (1922) by D(avid) H(erbert) Lawrence (1885-1930), the great British author. Originally written by Miller in the early 1930s, this essay was finally published in 1980 in the edition offered here- hardcover in clear protective dust jacket with illustrated boards, an exemplary Black Sparrow production, the full title of which is Notes On Aaron's Rod And Other Notes On Lawrence From The Paris Notebooks (per title page), one of 750 un-numbered trade copies from a total edition of 1026 copies per colophon. Edited & with an Introduction by the noted academician Seamus Cooney. Shifreen & Jackson, A229c, pgs. 486-487. A significant Miller & Lawrence-related collectible in its third-rarest original limited trade form. See also our item No. 5702.
