Description:

New York. 1969. Hill & Wang. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 27. 53 pages. March 1969. hardcover. Jacket design by Ben Clarke. 0809037556. keywords: March 15. inventory # 16407. FROM THE PUBLISHER - In his native England, Robert Nye is considered ‘one of the most startlingly original poets writing today’ (John Horder, London Tribune). Darker Ends, the first collection of his poetry to appear in the United States, gives American readers a chance to appreciate the justness of this regard. Here are poems about two self-adoring people separated in marriage, about a bat in a box, buying bread, finding sixpence, and fishing for stars. The visions of these poems are at times entrancing, at times terrible—but the terror is checked by the mastery with which it is expressed. Obviously for Robert Nye, as for all good poets, words have a magic and ultimate power for those with the gift of using them well. Mr. Nye published his first poems in The London Magazine when he was sixteen. (One of these—’Kingfisher’—is in the present collection.) He has since published poems in The Atlantic Monthly, New World Writing, Encounter, and the Times Literary Supplement. Two volumes of early work Juvenilia 1 and 2—were published in 1961 and 1963. The second of these won the Gregory Award. Bookseller Inventory #
