9781584563389: His Place for Story: Robinson Jeffers: a Descriptive Bibliography

"A marvelously comprehensive bibliography of Jeffers that reads like a detective novel and makes me want to peek into every item mentioned and immerse myself in his poetry." - Charles Simic. From the mid-1920s through the early 1930s, Robinson Jeffers was ranked by many critics as one of America's most important living poets. By the end of the 1930s, however, he was widely thought to have little new to say, and his reputation and readership declined. His anger at mankind's careless destruction of natural resources and his indifference to World War II further reduced his following. In recent decades, Jeffers has been rediscovered as an early critic of the 20th century's offenses against the natural world, and academics and critics again recognize the depth and complexity of his work. In light of this resurgence, it has long frustrated scholars and collectors that no one had carried forward S.S. Alberts' 1933 A Bibliography of the Works of Robinson Jeffers. That work provides invaluable material on Jeffers early work and most productive period, but leaves undocumented his output during his remaining 30 years and since his death in 1962, including books, pamphlets, and broadsides issued by such important small presses as those of Ward Ritchie, the Grabhorns, and William Everson. His Place for Story both revisits the years covered by Albert's correcting errors and adds full descriptive entries for all known separate Jeffers publications and for selected other publications with Jeffers contributions. Approx. 280 pp text plus 80 pp b/w images repeated in color on CD.

Book Description Oak Knoll Press, New Castle, 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 280 pages of text plus 80 pages of black and white images (repeated in color on CD). Hardcover with dustjacket. 8.5 x 11 inches. New book with a CD disk. BIBLIOGRAPHY. From the mid-1920s through the early 1930s, Robinson Jeffers was ranked by many critics as one of Americas most important living poets. By the end of the 1930s, however, he was widely thought to have little new to say, and his reputation and readership declined. His anger at mankinds careless destruction of natural resources and his indifference to World War II further reduced his following. In recent decades, Jeffers has been rediscovered as an early critic of the 20th centurys offenses against the natural world, and academics and critics again recognize the depth and complexity of his work. In light of this resurgence, it has long frustrated scholars and collectors that no one had carried forward S.S. Albertss 1933 A Bibliography of the Works of Robinson Jeffers. That work provides invaluable material on Jeffers early work and most productive period, but leaves undocumented his output during his remaining 30 years and since his death in 1962, including books, pamphlets, and broadsides issued by such important small presses as those of Ward Ritchie, the Grabhorns, and William Everson. His Place for Story both revisits the years covered by Alberts (correcting errors) and adds full descriptive entries for all known separate Jeffers publications and for selected other publications with Jeffers contributions. Dana Gioia, a poet and critic and former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, provides a preface and Tim Hunt, editor of Jeffers Collected Poetry, an afterword. Extensive appendices supply additional information on appearances of Jefferss poetry and prose. Illustrating the text are over 400 images of book covers, jackets, broadsides, and other items, in greyscale in the printed volume and in color on an accompanying CD. This is a guide to Jefferss work that libraries, researchers, and collectors will find indispensible. Michael Broomfield has what is likely the most extensive private collection of Jeffers books and broadsides. This is his second book, following a John Updike bibliography co-authored with Jack De Bellis and published by Oak Knoll in 2007. "A marvelously comprehensive bibliography of Jeffers that reads like a detective novel and makes me want to peek into every item mentioned and immerse myself in his poetry." - Charles Simic (Key Words: Michael Broomfield, Robinson Jeffers, Bibliography, Poets, Poetry, CDs, 1920s). book.
