About This Item

Oxford: Anvil Press Poetry, 1969. Signed limited first edition of the Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning poet's first book, one of only 50 numbered copies. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Louise Gluck on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. "This book introduces Louise Gluck, who at twenty-four is already a poet of terrifying accomplishment. Miss Gluck's work gives us a sense of defiled life made whole again by courage, wit and intelligence" (Stanley Moss).
