Why We Love This

The Edge of Being by Stephen Spender. New York: Random House, 1949. First printing. A rare First Edition of Spender's fourth book of poems, a little more serious and mature, due to the effects of the war years on his generation. Twenty-one poems with "richness of cadence and freedom of form" which attempt to define a new faith in a brave new world.
