Snodgrass helps Wolff to decide which poems to translate etc. etc. The letter also warns Wolff that the german Insel Verlag will try to stop Wolff from publishing the translations in order to retain "their version by Eitzen".. USA, 1962. 4°. approximately 120 pages. Softcover. Unique manuscript-document - the poems in ballpen or pencil. One typed and signed two-page-letter by Snodgrass and one handwritten letter with attachement by Snodgrass. W.D. Snodgrass helps Wolff to decide which poems to translate etc. etc. The letter also warns Wolff that the german Insel Verlag will try to stop Wolff from publishing the translations in order to retain "their version by Eitzen". William De Witt Snodgrass (January 5, 1926 ?- January 13, 2009) was an American poet under the pseudonym S. S. Gardons. He won the 1960 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. William De Witt Snodgrass was born in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh and was educated at Geneva College. His studies were interrupted when, during WWII, he was drafted into the Navy. After demobilization, Snodgrass resumed his studies, but transferred from Geneva College to the University of Iowa, eventually enrolling in the Iowa Writers' Workshop, which had been established in 1937, and was attracting as teachers some of the finest poetic talents of the day, among them John Berryman, Randall Jarrell and Robert Lowell. He was known to friends throughout his life as "De", pronounced "dee". Snodgrass's first poems appeared in 1951, and throughout the 1950s he published in some of the most prestigious magazines: Botteghe Oscure, Partisan Review, The New Yorker, The Paris Review and The Hudson Review. However, in 1957, five sections from a sequence entitled 'Heart's Needle' were included in Hall, Pack and Simpson's anthology, New Poets of England and America, and these were to mark a turning-point. When Lowell had been shown early versions of these poems, in 1953, he had disliked them, but now he was full of admiration. By the time Heart's Needle was published, in 1959, Snodgrass had already won the The Hudson Review Fellowship in Poetry and an Ingram Merrill Foundation Poetry Prize. However, his first book brought him more: a citation from the Poetry Society of America, a grant from the National Institute of Arts, and, most important of all, 1960's Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. It is often said that Heart's Needle inaugurated confessional poetry. Snodgrass disliked the term. Still, it should be pointed out that the genre he was reviving here seemed revolutionary to most of his contemporaries, reared as they had been on the anti-expressionistic principles of the New Critics. Snodgrass's confessional work was to have a profound effect on many of his contemporaries, amongst them, most importantly, Robert Lowell. Snodgrass had a long and distinguished academic career, having taught at Cornell, Rochester, Wayne State, Syracuse (1968?-1977), Old Dominion, and the University of Delaware. He retired from teaching in 1994 to devote himself full-time to his writing. He lived with his fourth wife, writer Kathleen Snodgrass (née Brown). Snodgrass created a truly modern work with De/Compositions by taking 101 classic poems and reconstructing them to prove to readers exactly how important the tiniest elements in poems can be.

        THE HAND OF THE ENEMY - Rare Fine Copy of The First Hardcover Edition/First Printing - ONLY COPY ONLINE

      Manila, Philippines: Regal Books/Erewhon Bookshop Distributors, 1962 - 1st Printing. 120 pages. Published in 1962. The author's debut novel. One of the greatest novels of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Kerima Polotan's first and only novel, and her greatest achievement. From a culture that is derivative at best and imitative at worst, how is Polotan's masterpiece possible? Well, it is important to keep in mind that at the time of its publication, the Philippines was one of the most prosperous nations in Asia, a vibrant (if fragile) democracy that enjoyed unprecedented economic growth, American financial largesse to its former colony and World War II ally, and a culture (however elitist) that supported Philippine writing in English. The external factors that help make a masterpiece possible cannot be overestimated precisely because the latter comes into being to challenge a modernizing nation's intrinsic soul. Once compared to Sartre (wrongly) and Heinrich Boll (rightly), Polotan is an original: Going against the Philippine Romantic grain, she wrote un-sentimentally, scathingly, and pitilessly about love, the impossible demands it makes on human beings, and its fundamental incompatibility not just with personal ambition but with the harsh realities of life. For Polotan, love is the sole reason for being. It's what we're here for. Its enemy, whose hand prevails in the end, is life itself. By all means, one should seize whatever saving grace life has to offer, be it the glory of literature, the pleasures of art, the consolation of religious faith, and most tangible of all, worldly success. Life is essentially a trade-off, and one must never ever have any illusions about the trade-offs one makes. Polotan saves her most withering words (in passages of great descriptive power) for those who think they can have it all. The bleakness of Polotan's vision is only somewhat relieved by the generosity of her soul. She cares about her characters, mourning rather than condemning their failings. Whereas almost everyone else writes in the "Creole" style (the flowery Philippine language infused with Spanish Baroque), her lean and elegant prose makes Polotan the greatest stylist in English the Philippines has ever produced. Polotan's tough-minded yet generous writing exposes the mediocrity of contemporary writing for what it is: Sterile prose, undergraduate philosophizing, Marvel Comics fantasy-narratives. "A man follows something more urgent than himself" (Kerima Polotan). Kerima Polotan died on August 19, 2011. She will not be replaced. An absolute "must-have" title for Kerima Polotan collectors. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and despite its imperfection (closed and open tears on DJ; slight fading on DJ spine) is still in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare copy thus. The greatest Philippine writer of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER KERIMA POLOTAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Alderney: Privately Printed for the author,, 1962. Octavo. Original japon-backed red boards, titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. With the unprinted acetate dust jacket. Frontis portrait of the author. An excellent copy in the battered acetate. First edition, sole printing. One of just 100 numbered copies signed by the author. This copy additionally has the author's signed presentation inscription to the verso of the title page, "Harry Griffiths [heart and arrow device] Tim White". White has also written out an unpublished 16-line poem on a rear blank, the title a reflection of Blake "Did He Who Made the Lamb Make Thee? (Yes.)", the poem itself liberal in sentiment though viscous in tone, a scarifying meditation on the craven injustice of societies based on a punitive religious code, in which, for "tiger-convict, crooked hangman, / frigging judge and fiery bish[op]", "each of you procures the other. / Tiger bite and bishop bless. / In the jungle, twin to brother, / Howl your hymns of happiness." Rare and appealing thus.
