A Test of Poetry.
Brooklyn: The Objectivist Press, 1948 - Octavo. Original reddish-brown cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Very slightly bowed, but an excellent copy in the dust jacket, spine panel faded, tiny chips at extremities, short closed tear to head of front fold. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy to Lawrence Ferlinghetti, inscribed by the author: "For Lawrence Ferling [sic] Luck etc Louis Zukofky Sept 1, 1954". Ferlinghetti was a key figure among the Beat writers and was the publisher of Allen Ginsberg's Howl. Zukofsky's book is an attempt to apply objective principles to the analysis of poetry, using examples from Homer to contemporary poets. The book serves as a handbook for, and a key product of, the "Objectivist" school of poetic analysis, which has shaped modernist poetry to this day. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
