The Platonic Blow
The Fuck You Press, New York 1965 - Square 8vo. [12] pp. Original printed wrappers. A fine copy with only minimal handling wear. FIRST EDITION. One of 300 copies of the "Trade edition" (there was also the "Rough Trade Edition" of 5 copies; an edition of 3 unnumbered copies; and the "Turkey Edition" of two copies). "According to persistent rumour the poem generally knows as 'The Platonic blow' was written by Auden in 1948 under the stylistic influence of Charles Williams. The poem appears to have circulated in typescript copies, one of which came into the hands of Mr. Ed Sanders, who printed it in his magazine 'Fuck you / a magazine of the arts'. The notoriety attaching to this first appearance led Mr. Sanders to issue [this] following separate edition" (Bloomfield & Mendelson, p. 366, Appendix II). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
