Of Being Numerous
New Directions, 1968. Stated First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Green paper covered boards with red cloth back strip and gilt lettering. Hint of wear to top edge. Text is clean and white, no marks. Unclipped DJ shows small spot of soil to front cover. Jacket design from an etching by Mary Oppen. "George Oppen in this book honors himself and American poetry. The long title poem for instance creates a world that is the product of brooding sight. What Oppen sees he seizes. The singularities of one poet's life reveal a darkness redeemed, embody love like complex stratographic layers, the minerality of what lasts, the metaphor of the generations. This is Oppen's fourth book since the early Thirties; few poetic careers in this time have absorbed so much and remained so identifiable." (from the jacket)
