"Snodgrass flowered in the most sterile of sterile places, a post war, cold war mid-western university's poetry workshop for graduate student poets. Most of the poems here have a shrill, authoratative eloquence; a few, such as The Operation adn April Inventory are tremendous accomplishments. However, it's the best parts o fthe sequence entitled Heart's Needle that I want to go all out for. They are beautifully perfect and a break-through for modern poetry. Their harrowing pathos will seem as permanent a hundred years from now as it does now" (Robert Lowell). In red cloth boards with gilt title to spine. In particularly bright, red dust jacket with white title to spine and front cover. Jacket is very lightly rubbed at the head of the spine and slightly sunned on the spine. 62 pages. POE/101316.
