SIGNED by Beckwith. Introduction by Jack Kerouac and cover illustration by Wendy MacNaughton
A new Dashwood publication of poems by Lois Sorrells Beckwith. From "AN INTRODUCTION by Jack Kerouac” written in 1963: “I commend the attention of serious students of poetry to these collected poems of Lois Sorrells, 26, whose maiden name was Milemore. Her poems are usually very short, little things passing by that you do a doubletake looking back at….she is really a somber poet who is likely to reach an extremely mysterious middle age and write mysterious shroudy verse about moors and miles of moors in her mind. Anyway, she happened." —Jack Kerouc May 7, 1963. Item #19817
