Eigner, Larry


1st Edition

Black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Some foxing to fore-edge, otherwise clean and unmarked. Dust jacket slightly rubbed and with some light shelf wear. Dust jacket illustrations by Patrick Caulfield. The same illustrations are printed inside at the beginning of each section. *** Larry Eigner (August 7, 1927 – February 3, 1996) was one of the principal figures of the Black Mountain School and is associated with the Language Poets. William Carlos Williams sums it up quite nicely in his blurb: ‘I haven’t got such a relaxed feeling from anything in years. There is no tension whatever, but a feeling of eternity. (…) Not that his text is not at times incomprehensible.’ ‘The Caulfield illustrations are a perfect visual counterpoint to Eigner’s work.
