THE LOST SON
1947. Paperback. ROETHKE, Theodore. "THE LOST SON." Reprinted from the April number of The Sewanee Review, 1947. 8 pp. 8vo., pamphlet format, printed paper wrappers, wire saddle stitch. Wrappers are moderately soiled and the pamphlet is lightly creased at the bottom. This is an offprint of the first appearance of the title poem of Roethke's second book of poetry, The Lost Son; it precedes the publication of the book by nearly a year. It is important because in it the themes and methods of the critically acclaimed book find their most complete expression, helping to establish Roethke's reputation as a major American poet. (DLB 5. McLeod notes only the periodical appearance, C80, and not the offprint.) Laid-in is an autograph letter, signed by Roethke. It is written in green ink on a single sheet of paper (11 by 8 1/2 inches), with Saginaw, MI as the return address, dated June 23, 1947; it is addressed to the American poet and writer, Theodore Morrison. "Dear Ted: Here's the first of those long pieces I mentioned. Hope you like it. Hope, too, we can get a game of tennis in this summer. I'm going to be at Yaddo in July; at Durham in August, etc. Best, Ted Roethke." The scarce offprint, with autograph letter laid-in:
