Item Description: New York City, NY: Bollingen Foundation/Pantheon Press, 1966. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 62 pages. Published in 1966. Collection of essays. Two of the greatest literary texts of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition and the Softcover Edition. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only as part of the legendary Bollingen Foundation Series. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Pantheon Books: Regular-sized volume format. Brown hard boards with black cloth overboards and gilt titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Text in the French original by Saint-John Perse. "On Poetry" is translated into English by W. H. Auden; "Dante", by Robert Fitzgerald. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Presents two of Saint-John Perse's magisterial essays. "On Poetry", his Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, was delivered in the French original on December 10, 1960. "Dante" was delivered as the Keynote Address on the occasion of Dante Alighieri's 700th Birthday on April 20, 1965. In such poems of soaring, epochal significance as "Anabasis", "Exile", "Winds", "Seamarks", "Chronique", and "Birds", among others (translated by some of the greatest Anglo-American poets such as T. S. Eliot, Louise Varese, W. H. Auden, and Robert Fitzgerald), Alexis Leger, a career diplomat who wrote poetry as another person, "Saint-John Perse", the Poet and Poetry in their most refined forms become one. They become the greatest and most sublime art ever invented by Man. "Civilizations do not perish from the pangs of one autumn; they merely shed their leaves. Inertia is the only mortal danger. The Poet is he who breaks for us the bonds of habit" (Saint-John Perse). An absolute "must-have" title for Saint-John Perse collectors. This title is a great book. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1960. One of the greatest poets of the 20th century. A fine copy. no. Bookseller Inventory # 17346
