About this Item

Houghton Mifflin Company, 1989. ISBN: 0395453747. First edition Condition: Very Good/Very Good. Hardcover: red quarter-cloth with pictorial jacket. Size - quarto (approximately 9.2" x 6.3"). 413 pages, some photographs. Not ex-library, name inside, unclipped. A comprehensive and objective view of one of the great unfulfilled literary talents, whose suicide in 1963 at the age of 30 came just days after publication of her one and only novel, The Bell Jar. This is a near fine copy in a very good jacket, which only has some light chipping to the corners, a couple of small indents to the front and some light creasing at the spine-ends to detract. : Bookseller Inventory # 25519

About this title


"A vivid and, to me, moving portrait of a young woman who, carrying the full mixed cultural load of Americans born in 1932, as well as personal distresses and limitations peculiar to herself, (became) in ten driven years . . . the most ruthlessly original poet of her generation."--John Updike.

About the Author:

Anne Stevenson's recent works include Collected Poems and a volumn of critical essays in the University of Michigan's Poets on Poetry Series. She lives in England.
