This book is a career spanning collection by a National Book Award winner who John Updike calls 'the high flier of American Poets'. For over five decades, James Dickey has been one of the nation's most important poets and a prominent man of letters. The New York Times has declared that 'Dickey continues to extend his vision as a major American poet". 'The Whole Motion' collects Dickey's work into a single volume. There are 235 poems ranging from his first book,'Into the Stone' to 'The Eagle's Mile which was a triumphant success and a bold and innovative departure from his traditional verse. The book is in Very Fine condition with no bumps or soiling. It looks new. This is a First edition and First printing. It is inscribed on the half-title page and it reads 'To James from James Dickey' all written in his flamboyant style. The dustjacket is also Fine and it is not price-clipped. There is no price because this is a university publication and they very rarely list prices. The dustjacket is whole and beautiful. This is the ultimate book for the James Dickey reader and will be enjoyed for generations. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
