About this Item

A Near Fine copy with a brief gift inscription on the front flyleaf in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with edge wear, light rubbing to the spine and two small closed edge tears. In 1959, Schwartz became the youngest-ever recipient of the Bollingen Prize, awarded for Summer Knowledge: New and Selected Poems published the same year, . His poetry differed from his stories in that it was less autobiographical and more philosophical. Poet and critic Allen Tate believed that "[Schwartz's] poetic style marked 'the first real innovation we've had since Eliot and Pound.'". Bookseller Inventory # 23987
