About this Item

First Edition in the paperback version. 8vo, original wrappers as first issued. 98. pp. A clean and tight copy. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED. "For those who have never before read Maxine Kumin’s poetry, House, Bridge, Fountain, Gate will come as a revelation, the finding of a poet at once uniquely American and yet as universal as Rilke (from whom the title of this collection comes).Here are nature poems which make no claim to ‘prettiness’ in the sense of God and butterflies; poems about growing up during the thirties and forties which are totally without the salve of nostalgia; and poems of what it is like to be a Jew living in Danville, Kentucky, where there are thirty-seven churches and no butcher shop. These are affirmative poems that speak with unremitting honesty of a world which contains worms in horses’ excrement as well as last grasshoppers."-Publisher. Bookseller Inventory # 15144
