SUBLIME. 1991.


Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1991
11 x 15.5cm, 4pp blue outer folder. Internally a 11 x 15.5cm, 4pp sheet with a poem:


Where the eagles circle in
darkness, the sons of the
Alps cross from precipice
to precipice, fearlessly,
on the flimsiest rope

In the Place de la Revolution
the man-made mountain
torrent clatters
and clatters.

The first half of the poem is from Hegel, the second Finlay refers to the increasing pile of heads (which did not really happen but is a popular historical meme) caused by the clattering guillotine.
This is one of a series of works which the Wild Hawthorn Press denoted as “Poems in folders”. VG+.
