Item #15070 Hekatombé. Robert Duncan.


N.p. Frontier Press, 1996. First Edition. no binding. Broadside poem printed in black and white on light tan paper; approx. 8 1/2 x 11 inches. The poem "which marked the closure of his life's work" was written by Duncan "in the predawn hours of January 17, 1985. He sent it on to Robert Creeley, the last missive between the two fellow Black Mountain College friends. This is the first publication of the poem, and as far as we can tell the only separate publication. The Frontier Press which published Olson, H. D. and others associated with Duncan ended with the death of Harvey Brown in 1990, so it is difficult to tell who was behind this publication. The only copy listed on WorldCat is held in Buffalo which may be a clue. [Lisa Janot - Robert Duncan, The Ambassador from Venus: A Biography, p. 471.] Edges a bit creased, paper lightly toned, very good, but seemingly rare. Very good. Item #15070
