KAVANAGH, Patrick. A Soul for Sale. Poems.


1 in stock

London: Macmillan, 1947. First edition. Octavo. pp. vi, 55. Green cloth, title in gilt along spine. A near fine copy in very good, but torn dust jacket.
In this, his second collection of poems, Kavanagh takes his themes from the life about him in his native land, or from her tragic past, treating them sometimes in the mood of the mystic, sometimes with a sharp realism. His portrait of an old Irish peasant in the famous poem, ‘The Great Hunger’, shows his qualities as a writer of marked power and insight.
