Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1990
21.4 x 13.7cm, 4pp red outer folder. Internally a 21.4 x 13.7cm, 4pp sheet with a poem:


The Revolution is frozen; all
principles are weakened; there
remain only red bonnets
worn by Intrigue.

The waves in the rye grass
never reach the shore.

The poem is denoted to be from S-J (Saint-Just) and IHF (Finlay himself). Finlay is comparing Saint-Just’s complaint of the stagnation of the revolution to the movement of grass in wind which may look similar to waves but do not affect the sea.

This is one of a series of works which the Wild hawthorn Press denoted as “Poems in folders”. VG+.
