SWEENEY AGONISTES. T. S. Eliot.

SWEENEY AGONISTES.

Fragments of an Aristophanic Melodrama. London: Faber & Faber, (1932). Original light blue paper-covered boards lettered in red.

First Edition, which consisted of 4100 copies. There was no American edition. Eliot later wrote, as a note in an anthology of one-act plays,~The author wishes to point out that SWEENEY AGONISTES is not a one-act play and was never designed as such. It consists of two fragments. But as the author has abandoned any intention of completing them, these two fragmentary scenes have frequently been produced as a one-act play.~This copy is from the first issue, in light blue (and not blue-green) boards. The volume is in clean, near-fine condition (a hair-line crack at the end of one joint); the jacket is near-fine as well (a few short nicks, very minor soil). Gallup A23. Item #8600

Price: $200.00
