Sappho's raft : le rideau de la Mytilénienne (Jargon 99)
Jargon 99. Frontispiece by David Hockney. Meyer's poetry here explores the dialectic between the vulnerability of human life and the striving for heroism in a disappointing, powerless modern era. Meyer describes his relationship to Sappho’s poetry as “upheaval, the ache of indifference, the ecstasy of embroilment,” implying that her raft is adrift in a chaotic ocean of discovery.;Two copies, hardcover. C.1, special cloth edition is signed and numbered 15 of 50 handbound and signed copies. C.2 is one of 450 bound in cloth over boards; numbered 46. An additional 1000 copies were bound in paper; not in library.
