Book Description McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 1968. Paper. Condition: VG+. First Edition. The author opens this 95 page collection of his work with a sort of apologia. He explains that textbook poerty and traditional (Yeats) word-mongers are passe' ad boring. He writes that the up-to-date poet "should be a dead shot", sending the bullet winging like a finished stanza straight between the eyes ". Strong stuff !! And his selections follow prety much that theme - see for example : `Autopsy on Aberfan', `He Saw Them, At First', `Poetess', and `Poet at Sinai '. Informative words that crop up include : traitoress, screamed,carrion, tragic, condemned, and blood-stained. Cond : Paper wrapper is white and/or green with yellow and red lettering. Cover graphic is Irving (X three) on a photo cube. Chipping at edges light because p/o has fashioned a clear book cover - WITH tape attacnments. Light creases, no names, marks , tears, nor stains. Slightly yellowed but UNsoiled. Giftable ! Originally sold for $2.50. Quote (p. 28) : " . It is a coolness making herrings smell more rank; in which the ripe colour of bananas astounds; potatoes, a visible skin affliction of air, lie mute, lie sullen, in their earthy bags . . ".
