signed first edition
by GRAHAM, Jorie.
Princeton: Princeton University Press, (1983).. First edition.. 83 pp. Between pages 20-21, short crack in the binding at top edge (a production flaw), else very near fine in like dust jacket. Graham's remarkable second book, whose privileging of longer, more speculative poems predicts the radical aesthetic change of her third, THE END OF BEAUTY. Includes 'At Luca Signorelli's Resurrection of the Body,' a work that prefigures the 'Self-Portraits' of her third book: 'How far/is true?...It took him days/that deep/caress, cutting/ unfastening// until his mind/could climb into/the open flesh and/mend itself.' Dated (1993) and SIGNED by Graham on the title page. (Inventory #: 30675)
