Book Description Ransom House, 1931., New York:, 1931. Large 8vo. 29 pp. Original vellum-backed brown printed boards, spine printed with black titling, original slip-case. Very good. LIMITED EDITION of 500 numbered copies, signed by the author. âJeffers promised [Bennett Cerf] something suitable for Random House âin six month.â Random House ended up publishing Descent to the Dead (1931), the sequence Jeffers wrote in Ireland and England as a limited edition title (it was later incorporated in Give Your Heart to the Hawks), and when Liveright went bankrupt in 1933, Random House became Jeffersâ publisher.â Una Jeffersâ letters suggest Jeffers began writing the Descent to the Dead poems sometimes in August, a month or so after they arrived in Ireland â¦ and that he finished them sometime in November. â¦ The Irish poems apparently came first, the British poems last, following the progress of their travels. âSubjected Earthâ would have been written sometime after September 19. The title of âThe Dead to Clemenceau: November 1929â gives its approximate date, and âIona: The Graves of the Kingsâ likely dates from this time also, or just a bit earlier, since both were written on stationery from the same Manchester hotel. During the trip Jeffers may also have considered a narrative with an Irish setting, since a few fragments on the Descent to the Dead manuscripts read as if they might be the starts of narrative episodes â¦â â" Tim Hunt, The Collected Poetry of Robinson Jeffers: Volume Five Textual Evidence and Commentary, Stanford University Press, 2002.
