(The Elizabeth Press, 1971)
This is a good book of generally page-length poems. I enjoy the poems, like Letters on 71. One poem is titled Fables (58). It celebrates two famous legends. My purpose in including this book in the collection ...
(North Atlantic Books, 1976)
A book of poems, one of which (41-66) is Aesop's Garden. This is the kind of poetry that does not use punctuation except the parenthesis and the dash. I noted five levels of indentation. The poetry is heavy on ...

Greener Pastures: A New Deal Fable of Past, Present, and Future.

Im Spiegel der Tierwelt: Studien von Käthe Olshausen-Schönberger
(Braun & Schneider, 1905)
This is one of three printings I have of the first volume of this work. Like the apparent first edition, this edition prints on only one side of the page. Also like the first edition, it has heavy paper and is therefore ...
