Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1992
13.5 x 9.2cm, 4pp plus end papers and blue laid paper wrappers. The poem is as follows:
THE HAPPY CATASTROPHE
and the explanation on the left “The happy catastrophe” – Friedrich Schlegel’s characterisation of the French Revolution.
The word befalls is split as if part has dropped off or down but also is a physical reminder of a head falling from a body or the guillotine blade dropping down from above.
Slight former diagonal crease on cover but else VG.
Out of stock
