The City and the Island
NY, Atheneum, 1966. The second book by this poet whose first was selected in the prestigious Yale Younger Poets Series, and who is now the Poetry Editor for the Atlantic Monthly. Inscribed by the author in the year of publication to Pauline Kael "in admiration, affection, and in the loyal belief that she is the finest of film critics." A nice inscription, and an early one praising Kael's criticism, predating her hiring by The New Yorker in 1967. This is the issue in wrappers; edge-sunned; very good. [#022685] SOLD
