Figure in the Door
Black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Some foxing to top-edge. Dust jacket rubbed and chipped with some loss to head of spine. Closed tear halfway down the spine. *** Arthur Gregor (b.1923) is often compared to the Austrian poet Rilke. He has the same inward-looking intensity. He is quietly romantic and his poetry is a far cry from the poetry of the period. With the Beats he shares a sense of spirituality, but he whispers rather than shouts. His language is clear, almost plain, his poetry is mournful and easy to understand. Gregor deserves to be much better known than he is.
