The Poetry Chap-Book - Spring 1944


Volume II, No. 3; 28 pages; Clean and secure in original turquoise blue wrappers printed in red. Pagination: (ii), 59-81, (3). From Cerf's preface: "Even in peacetime the casualty list among poets is shockingly high. Now, with the country in its third year of war, almost all the young writers of verse have been absorbed into the armed forces and can find, on the whole, neither the time nor the mood for lyrical flight. Those who remain hors de combat seem to want to talk to themselves in a language understood by a cult of one. ... While we wait for the voice that will sing of this war-torn generation, we can do no less than keep alive the songs that linger."
