(10),11-68,(4). 8vo,grey cloth with black and green lettering to spine. The Brooklyn-born poet 's first collection of verse. "Forthrightness, sincerity, intense concernf ro the great public issues of today no less than for the private involvements that mark man's life in every time: these qualities give the work of LouLipsitz its originality, its poignancy, its power. In many of these poems he speaks directly of particular events: the March on Washington, the Wattsriots, the American involvement in Vietnam. In many more, it is the indivi dual person that engages his attention: the beaten prizefighter, the truck driver plowing arrogantly through city traffic, the man and woman in a moment of intimate emotion. Whatever his theem, Mr. Lipsitz' staetment is always straightforward, pointed, and moving." - from the dustjacket. Very good in nicked, lightly spotted, unclipped dustjacket.
