Scarce first edition of this ambitious late work, a long poem using as its point of departure a fifty-line fragment by the ancient Greek poet Stesichorus, and conceived by H. D. as a female-centered rejoinder of sorts to Ezra Pound’s Pisan Cantos and the epic genre at large. Introduction by Horace Gregory. NY: Grove Press, 1961. First edition. Octavo (5.5 x 8.25 in.); xi, 315pp.; orange-red cloth boards. Near fine in a very good, unclipped (“$5.00”) jacket with multiple chips and closed tears, light fading to the spine panel.
