Khurbn & Other Poems
(NY), New Directions, (1989). The hardcover edition of this collection of poems based on a visit to his family's ancestral home in Poland. Inscribed by Rothenberg to Clayton [Eshleman]: "Companion in these times in which there is only poetry to bring us through." Eshleman provides a lengthy blurb on the back of the dust jacket (the only blurb on the jacket) in which he says that Rothenberg "pulls Adorno's 'After Auschwitz, there can be no poetry' inside out, to read: 'after auschwitz/ there is only poetry.'" Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. [#033556] $125
