About this Item

First edition. 8vo, white cloth with original publisher’s dust jacket. 67 pp. In fine condition in the dust jacket. The cloth with just a light touch of common "rusting" caused by the type of glue used at the turn-ins. Anne Sexton’s fourth volume of poems including twenty-five love poems. "They can be read as the story of a single lover, of a single romance which begins with a joyous rebirth described in the opening poem, ‘The Touch.’ But there is in each poem a confrontation with humanity by a woman who cannot train her eye off the real face of that humanity, nor her powers of insight off its almost seasonal cycles. She quotes from a Yeats essay, ‘Everything that has been shall be again’ bringing a reader’s attention to the themes of departure, return, recurrence that provide a unique quality of unity and progression. It is Anne Sexton’s understanding of what all lovers share, seen this time in the specifics of romance, that carries her work to the furthest limits of poetry and into the realm of great literature."-Publisher.
