About this Item

1st Printing. Signed. 148 pages. Published in 1973. Pioneering and landmark collection of poems. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents "Four Young Women: Poems". Edited with an illuminating Appreciation/Introduction by the great literary critic and poet Kenneth Rexroth. Features the work of four women poets: Jessica Tarahata Hagedorn, Alice Karle, Barbara Szerlip, and Carol Tinker. Except for Hagedorn, the others remain accomplished poets with a cult rather than mainstream following. Hagedorn succeeded in making the transition to writing novels and attained enormous national and international acclaim as a result. But her beginnings (and great love) as a writer remain poetry, which she continues to write. "The majority of students who write poetry are women and usually they write better than the men. These four women, each in her individual manner, write in a wholly contemporary idiom. Translated into any language, their poems would be readily negotiable" (Kenneth Rexroth). An absolute "must-have" title for Jessica Hagedorn collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in glossy pink pen-marker on the title page by Jessica Hagedorn. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The signature glows beautifully against the light. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Finalist for the National Book Award in 1990 for "Dogeaters". Voted the "Best Book of The Year" by the Before Columbus Foundation. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JESSICA HAGEDORN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0070738440. Bookseller Inventory # 6312
