by DUBIE, Norman.
Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, (1971).. First trade paperback printing.. 56 pp. Some foxing to top edge and to covers, else near fine in wrappers. Dubie's first full-length collection, a sequence of 50 'sonnets' clearly as indebted in style to the manic fractures of Berryman's DREAM SONGS as to the gravitas of Lowell's NOTEBOOK. This book should be of special interest--and a surprise-- to those who love Dubie's later persona poems and meditations. The early work shows the genesis and germ of his talents. (Inventory #: 29658)
