About this Item

First edition. With two drawings by Leonard Baskin. 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth over boards, lettered in copper on the spine. Dustjacket with illustration by Baskin. xi,182 pp. A very nice and well preserved copy, the bottom edge of the jacket only with the most minimal evidence of shelving and very minor spotting to the edges of the prelims. AWARD WINNING POET OFFERS 34 POEMS. These poems tell of farm life for the ordinary farmer. "Of Mr. Hughes’s power and powers as a poet there can be no doubt. He can command the child’s lacerating unsentimentality; the animal’s instinctual pounce; and the elements’ unarguing cogency. His world resembles that of ‘King Lear,’ a world of human inhumanity, of unfathomable predators, of Job’s comfortlessness and of violence shot through with flickering grace."-Christopher Ricks.
