Thomas McGrath : Passages Toward the Dark, Poems by Thomas McGrath 1982 First Edition, Trade Paperback Vintage Book
Vintage from the 1980s
Materials: Trade Paperback
Of "Passages Toward the Dark" by celebrated poet Thomas McGrath, two reviews by fellow poets praising the book and its author are quoted on the rear cover:
|> This book contains some of the most marvelous poems ever written to children, "The Letters to Tomasito", as well as continuations of "Letter to Imaginary Friend", by one of the great masters of the narrative in the twentieth century. In McGrath a commitment to rebellious vision leads us - leads us, paradoxically, deeper into the human, into the humorous, into a sort of Irish joy of life. <| ... Robert Bly
|> Tom McGrath's sense of reality rests in the land, and his singular eye is always exploring it and the possibilities of direction within it. At times he can seem like Roethke or Yeats or Thomas or Neruda, yet he's consistently his own man. His lines build like Japanese terracing. He's one of the most visionary poets of people on the land that we presently have. <| ... Larry Woiwode

Lovely book, just as described. I am so thrilled to have found Professorbooknoodle! Such a nice variety of books it was difficult to narrow down my choices. But I have already started a new cart from this seller! (Yes, reading is a bit of an addiction for me; but it saved me during the pandemic shutdown!)
As described and shipped quickly. This is one of several books I ordered and each was in a protective sleeve, taped closed, and surrounded by bubble wrap and packing paper. I would definitely buy from this seller again. Thank you!
Awesome. I wish I had the entire set. The illustrations are outstanding #Easy to read. Way way over my expectations
I was super excited when this arrived! Quick shipping and it is in incredible shape for something 111 years old!
