[Lawrence, Kansas]: Tansy, Spring 1970. First edition. Original yellow wraps stapled to spine. The first issue of the literary magazine out of Lawrence, Kansas, featuring original work by Frank Stanford. An unmarked, bright copy.
An early example of the Southern experimental poet's work, appearing here on pages 38-40 and comprised of two poems, Early Times in a Mississippi Liquor Store and The Hole. Both give a glimpse into the gritty, haunting, stream-of-consciousness style that would become hallmarks of Stanford's mature work. (Item #4003)
