About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: The Clam Theater: Poems.

Publisher: Wesleyan University Press, Middletown

Publication Date: 1973

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.


A Fine tight copy in a Very Good, price-clipped dust jacket with foxing to spine and rear panel. Russell Edsonís idiosyncratic body of work is populated with strange and intriguing figures, and the poems are surreal and fablelike, sometimes resembling brief plays. In an interview, Edson once said of his writing process, "My job as a writer is mainly to edit the creative rush. The dream brain is the creative engine I sit down to write with a blank page and a blank mind. Wherever the organ of reality wants to go I follow with the blue-pencil of consciousness.".
