About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Poems 1968-1970.

Publisher: Doubleday, New York

Publication Date: 1971

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.


A Very Good copy with spotty discoloration to the board edges and a previous owner name in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with a small tear to lower corner. Graves's theory of poetry—if it can be dignified by the name of theory—is essentially a perfectly conventional late Romantic notion of poetry as emotional and magical; it is remarkable only in its crude simplicity and vulnerability. Graves's "wholesale rejection of 20th-century civilization and complete submission to the capricious demands of the Goddess" with a quote from The White Goddess: "Since the age of 15 poetry has been my ruling passion and I have never intentionally undertaken any task or formed any relationship that seemed inconsistent with poetic principles; which has sometimes won me the reputation of an eccentric.".
