August 1990

Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1990
5.0 x 17.8cm, 2pp card. One side has the text: "A ROSE IS A ROSE IS A ROSE" accredited to "Gertrude Jekyll" and on the other side "ARROWS ARE ARROWS ARE ARROWS" accredited to "Hereclitus". Jekyll was an influential turn of the century gardener and the quote is an adaption of Shakespeare as is the fake quotation offered as Hereclitian. The latter, of course, stressed the lack of repetition in history. A jokey work. VG+.
