Comments

A handsomely printed and illustrated selection of the poems of poet Oscar Venceslas Lubiz-Milosz (1877-1939), who though Lithuanian by birth wrote in the language of his adopted country, France. The text of the poems, in both French and English, is preceded by an interesting introduction about Milosz by poet Kenneth Rexroth. This was the fifth book printed by Henry Evans at his Peregrine Press in San Francisco and one of several collaborations he did with artist Edward Hagedorn.
