A COLLECTIBLE - A SIGNED (1963) FIRST EDITION! Published by New Directions. Lawrence Ferlinghetti is an American "beatnik" poet of the 60's. His first book, "A Coney Island of the Mind", published in 1958 brought him west coast fame, then national and international recognition and speaking engagements.
DESCRIPTION FROM THE DUST COVER:
HER by Lawrence is a novel, a somewhat strange novel even today (a little like James Joyce interior conscious monologue).
"HER", the 'true mad hero' of this novel is in search of himself, or of a part of himself which is lost and he seeks his identity trough 'HER'. In his consciousness, that lost part of himself is seen to be an 'innocence' which is he comes to equate with 'HER' virginity, and the composite image of 'HER' tha emerges is both eternal woman and Beat Madonna. By means of a narrative method that ma prove as important as Joyce's interior monologue, we enter more and more deeply into that consciousness until, in the final section we are - with the 'hero' himself - completely submerged in it.
