Three Poems for Now [Facsimile Edition, inscribed]

Washington DC: University Press of Washington DC, [1972]. Reprint. Slim 12mo. Blue cloth boards; dustjacket; 29pp. Inscribed on front endpaper to John Ransom Lewis, Poet Laureate of Georgia: "For John Ransom Lewis who is helping to restore dignity and poetry to the institution of the Poet Laureateship in the footsteps of his distinguished predecessor // Gordden Link;" undated, but presumably after 1974 (the year Lewis was appointed laureate). Book Fine, in lightly worn, price-clipped dustwrapper. Link (d. ca. 1985) was semi-prominent in left-wing literary circles of the Thirties, contributing to such radical little magazines as Ed Conroy's "The Anvil" and "The Rebel Poet." Like many fellow travellers of the Thirties, he turned far to the right during the Cold War, and finished his career teaching English at a small, religiously-affiliated liberal arts college in Winchester, Virginia.
