About this Item

Folio. Original black morocco-backed cloth boards, title stamped in blind on front cover, gilt-lettered on spine; publisher's slipcase with title embossed in blind (light wear to slipcase). LIMITED EDITION, number 211 of 250 numbered copies SIGNED BY BECKETT. "'Zone,' the central poem in Apollinaire's career, prefaces his collection Alcools ? The poet was thirty-three years old, the age of Dante embarking on his tour of the afterlife. The poem doesn't so much praise its objects of futurist desire-the Eiffel Tower, airplanes, a railway terminal-as treat them like pastoral motifs. The heart of the poem is not in the future at all but in a past recollected in anxiety and sadness" (David Lehman). Bookseller Inventory # 54399
