COMPLETE POEMS. Signed by the Editor Joseph Bednarik

Port Townsend: Copper Canyon Press, 2021. First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the editor Joseph Bednarik on the title page underneath his printed name. A "What do you think?" reply postcard laid in. One of only 4000 printed in grey cloth with dust jacket painting by Russell Chatham "Spring Moon Over the Marshall Ridge" (2018) and a photograph of Harrison by Andy Anderson on the jacket rear panel. This book is the work of a lifetime by one of America's iconic writers. Introduced by activist and naturalist Terry Tempest Williams, this tour de force contains every poem Harrison published over his fifty-year career as well as a section of unpublished "Last Poems." Here are the nature-based lyrics of his early work, the high-velocity ghazals, a harrowing prose poem correspondence with a Russian suicide, the riverine suites, fearless meditations inspired by the Zen monk Ikkyu, and a buoyant conversation in haiku-like gems with friend and fellow poet Ted Kooser. Throughout these pages teem Harrison's legendary passions and appetites, his obsessions, rages, and love songs to the natural world. 931 pages with 891 poems (includes Harrison's final poem), an appendix, index of titles, index of first lines, and 'about the author.'. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #14748
