M. Kuktos, Kaune : Karo cenzuros leista (M. Kuktos, Kaunas : Published with military censorship permission) 1931 - Lithuanian language. Octavo 15 x 22 cm. Weight 150 gr. Wrappers, [94] pp. The book is in Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Very minor rubbing to the bottom edge of the cover, otherwise perfect. Author's inscription on the fly-leaf. Limited edition book, current copy no. 66. Current brilliant collection of the Avant-Garde parody by Benediktas Babrauskas refers to the alternative narrations, which provoked the national metanarrative of the Lithuanian literature. Babrauskas’ narrative type, which was frequently called anarchistic, not only excluded the shortcomings of the national metanarrative, but also presented the synchronic case of researching the literature. The collection includes 53 parody and satirical poems, and the last piece of the book is a parody of Liudas Gira's critics. Eminent Lithuanian writers and poets get mocked in the book: Balys Sruoga, Putinas (Vincas Mykolaitis), Kazys Boruta, Bernardas Brazdžionis, Ignas Šeinius, Juozas Banaitis, Maironis, Kazys Binkis, Juozas Tysliava, Vincas Kreve, Teofilis Tilvytis and many others. Anarchy appears not only in the content but also in the design. Avant-Garde poetic texts including experimentations with vocabulary and using original statements are supplemented by typographical visual experiments: hyphens instead of words, painted over words, missing page numbers (only on the page 13 footer is printed number 2), somewhere used nonstandard poems titles (4. A. A.; 5. ?). Below each poem's title is marked ridiculed persons names, which are slightly changed (instead of correct Liudas Gira written Liudnas Gira, which can be translated as Sad Gira). It all looks chaotic and amazing! Most notable feature of present publication - author's name is nowhere mentioned in the book. Illustrated wrappers is a great combination of constructivist font on the front cover and modernist graphic design on the back cover. Front cover is a sequel to the back. Benediktas Babrauskas (1910-1968) - Lithuanian writer, poet, prominent literary critic and public figure. Collaborated with many Lithuanian periodical editions.

Since 1949 lived in Chicago, there he was in 1951-1958 Lithuanian Writers Association Chairman, in 1955-1957 Vice-President (and one of the founders) of Lithuanian Cultural Foundation Community.
