Title: What the Light Was Like: Poems.
Publisher: Knopf, New York
Publication Date: 1985
Edition: Uncorrected Proof.
A Fine copy in yellow paper wraps. Review and promotional material stapled in. This is Clampitt's 2nd book and an uncommon state. "Clampitt's poetry is characterized by a "baroque profusion, the romance of the adjective, labyrinthine syntax, a festival lexicon," said New York Times Book Review. Clampitt's use of vocabulary and syntax is elaborate, characterized by erudite allusions, for which she provides detailed footnotes.What the Light Was Like centers around images of light and darkness, and her imagery throughout is sensuous and specific.
