How it works

Register

xv + 159pp. Cloth pictorial/gilt hardcover.

Very good, near fine copy.

The title poem, subtitled "A Study of the Negro Race," is Lindsay's best-known work, and his many successful recitations of the poem truly gave "voice" to the poet's art in the United States and prefigured the later Beat/Jazz collaborations.
