8vo, original printed glossy wrappers. Slight soiling to the white wrappers, otherwise a fine copy. Rare. Slight soiling to the white wrappers, otherwise a fine copy. Rare First edition of Brodsky's second book, and the first book whose publication the poet had authorized. Brodsky's "first "real" book, A Halt in the Desert . . .included seventy short poems, two long ones ("Isaac and Abraham" and "Gorbunov and Gorchakov"), and four translations from John Donne. Some of the content overlaps with that of Short Poems and Narratives ("Isaac and Abraham" and twenty-two early pieces), but more than two-thirds is new work. He discarded everything he considered imitative or immature . . . he laid out the sections and the order of poems himself." - Lev Loseff, Joseph Brodsky. A Literary Life. (New Haven, CT.: Yale University Press, 2011), p. 124-125. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 22151
