COULETTE, Henri. The War of the Secret Agents and Other Poems. New York : Charles Scribner's Sons, (1966). First Edition of Author's First Book. 8vo, card covers. The Lamont Poetry Selection 1965. "These poems, divided into five sections, are about the modern wars of great nations, which are never won, and the ancient wars of the soul, which are never over. They are about illusion and reality. They are poems formed with scrupulous craftsmanship; they strike with precision, with the flash of acerbic wit, and the sudden lift of controlled feeling. The voice behind them is an American voice, and its tone is tough, bitter and whimsical." Covers worn, small stains to a few pages, else very good. 15.00
