Item #29754 POEMS FOR MIDNIGHT. Donald Wandrei.


Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House: Publishers, 1964. Octavo, cloth. First edition. 742 copies printed. "A collection of all the poems Wandrei wished to preserve, taken largely from his earlier collections, ECSTASY AND OTHER POEMS and DARK ODYSSEY (1931). Each poem in the sonnet cycle 'Sonnets of the Midnight Hours' (composed around 1927) was inspired by a dream of Wandrei's. The influence of Clark Ashton Smith (with whom Wandrei had come in contact as early as 1924) is evident." - Joshi, Arkham 74. "Sonnets of the Midnight Hours" may have influenced Lovecraft's "Fungi from Yuggoth." Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 8-44. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 6-60. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with merest hint of tanning to spine panel and along flap folds. (#169037) (29754). Item #29754
