Book Description Capricorn Press, 1972., Santa Barbara:, 1972. 4to. [4], 19, [7] pp. Title page illustration. Green gilt-stamped leatherette, acetate jacket. Occidental bookplate. Fine. Limited edition of 250 numbered copies. SIGNED by the author at colophon as Brother Antoninus. Designed and printed by Noel Young, title page blocks cut by Graham Mackintosh, hand-bound by Earle Gray. This is not a collection per se. but a single seven page poem followed by a much longer "A Note to Who is She that Looketh Forth as The Morning". In the note Everson lays out some of his creative process, while also examining the influence of Swinburne on the piece, and exploring the difficulty of reconciling his faith to his poetry. Lee Bartlett writes that this poem and others were submitted to Doubleday, "which summarily rejected it." Then he offered the book to New Directions, "I had planned to publish the book under my religious name, depending upon my status and the authority of the Order to carry its extreme sensuality. But now in a period of transition I do not have these supports, and I fear that such a book, coming at this time, will compromise the whole force of my witness as an exponent of erotic mysticism, a witness that I painfully developed over much suspicion and many sneers, throughout the whole course of my life in the monastery. So that now, if the public took this work as merely a raunchy offering by a defrocked monk, all would be lost." Thus he opted for printing the book as a limited edition. Seller Inventory # B2498
