Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"May-June 1940" by Robinson Jeffers. Have no idea why this poem is impossible to find online or in any other "Selected Poems of R.J." or anthologies that include his work...was it suppressed during the McCarthy era and just never brought back, for some reason?

I hope some Literature prof/expert will read this and enlighten me.

Anyway, that one poem made it worthwhile to buy this book...it's a truly beautiful and stark poem.
