Comments

Lovely example of Stanford's 15,283-line epic poem, the last of his books published prior to taking his own life in 1978. A significant portion of the original print run was destroyed in a basement flood, and it would be nearly 14 years after publication before the book would go entirely out of print. Over time the book has developed its own mystique, with copies being passed from hand-to-hand, and marathon readings taking place on college campuses. The front cover reproduces a wire photograph of corpses and grieving women, taken at Tan Son Nhut Airport in Saigon, on the last day of the Vietnam War, which was replaced for the recent reissue by Lost Roads Publisher's (2000).
