Description:

First edition of Lowell's contemplative response to the events of the late 1960s: "as my title intends, the poems in this book are written as one poem, jagged in pattern. . . . Accident threw up subjects, and the plot swallowed them." This copy is warmly inscribed to critic Dwight MacDonald and his wife Gloria: "I've tried to get more of you than just your name in this book. With love, Cal." MacDonald marched alongside Lowell at the 1967 march on the Pentagon, and is the dedicatee of the poem "The March": "lovely to lock arms, to march absurdly locked / (unlocking to keep my wet glasses from slipping) / to see the cigarette match quaking in my fingers, / then to step off like green Union Army recruits / for the first Bull Run, sped by photographers." The impact of Lowell and MacDonald's appearance at that march is memorably recorded in Norman Mailer's Armies of the Night; Lowell includes a poem dedicated to Mailer here as well. An appendix listing relevant dates includes the Six-Days' War, the Newark riots, the murders of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Russian occupation of Czechoslovakia, and, for both 1967 and 1968, "the Vietnam War." A near-fine copy, with an important literary association. Octavo, original blue cloth lettered in silver, tan endpapers, original unclipped dust jacket. Lightest edgewear to jacket, faint occasional foxing. Bookseller Inventory #
