Book Description New Directions [Printed by The Prairie Press], Norfolk, Connecticut, 1941. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Book Condition: Very good. New Directions Poet of the Month #5 (1941). The text block is in very good condition, with no marks, tears, or dog-ears. Original owner's bookplate affixed to the half-title page. Red paper cover is sun faded along edges and has a tiny hole along the spine. 9¿ x 6¿, 27 pages, 3 ounces. [Info from inner flap]: Theodore Spencer's poems are well known to many readers through frequent publication in periodicals, but this is the first time they have appeared in book form. They are poems which, as the author points out in a prefatory note, were written to be read aloud. They are lyrics, that is, in the original sense of the term; and their essential musical quality is clearly demonstrated in the recordings, which have been made of Mr. Spencer's own readings of many of the poems in this volume. Few modern poets have been able to use so effectively such ancient lyric devices as refrain and variation. Mr Spencer does not achieve his musical effects, however, by sacrificing the logical coherence of his poetry: these brief lyrics, though their meaning is complex and subtle, are nowhere vague; and what they say is intensified. rather than obscured, by their metrical patterns. XX [From Wikipedia]: Theodore Spencer (1902-1949) graduated from Princeton University in 1923, and received a Ph.D from Harvard University in 1928. He then taught there, from 1927 to 1949. He was appointed lecturer in English literature at Cambridge University, England, in 1939. In 1942, Spencer gave the Lowell lectures on Shakespeare, published as Shakespeare and the Nature of Man, his most important work. Spencer also published essays, short stories, and poetry.

Book Description New Directions (Poet of the Month), 1941. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. The volume is bumped around the spine ends and the pastedowns have some perimeter browning (we suspect from excess glue used in the binding process). The mylar sleeved dust jacket is clipped on all four corners (excising the price) the spine area is sunned, and there is a snag at the top of the rear panel. A bookplate of author and bibliophile, Melba Berry Bennett is affixed to the front pastedown. Bookseller Inventory # 16041917
