THE MAN IN THE WALL: Poems by James Laughlin.
Edition: First printing.
New York: New Directions, 1993. dj. Hardcover first edition - Foreword by Guy Davenport says, "So Mr. Laughlin invented his own kind of poem, at once very old and very new. Its form was versatile enough for any subject at all: love affairs, childhood memories, travels, politics. His style is as transparent as a clean windowpane. His mind (the part of it that makes poems) is a magic attic of books, images, people, voices." Also, says Davenport, "He is the youngest and most modern poet now writing in the United States." Index of titles and first lines. 118 pgs. ISBN: 0-8112-1236X.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
