About this Item

First edition of the author's first book. 8vo, original black cloth over boards in original publisherís dust jacket. 67 pp. In fine condition. RARELY ENCOUNTERED. A FINE COPY OF THE AUTHOR'S FIRST BOOK, IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET. "Mrs. Sexton writes with the now enviable swift lyrical openness of a romantic poet. Yet in her content she is a realist and describes her very personal experiences with an almost Russian abundance and accuracy. Her poems stick in my mind I donít see how they can fail to make the great stir they deserve to make."-Robert Lowell of this book. "This book of poems has the cumulative impact of a good novel. It has the richness, variety, and compactness of true poetry. It is a book to read and remember. "Anne Sexton is an accomplished lyricist. She can combine the straightforwardness of plain earnest speech with a subltle rhythmic control, tight formal structure, and brilliantly effective imagery. But she makes her singular claim on our attention by the fact that she has important things to tell us and tells them dramatically."-Publisher. Bookseller Inventory # 15156
