Permit me refuge

Los Angeles: The California Quarterly, 1955. x, 46p., limited to 1,000 copies, very good in cloth-backed decorated boards and slightly chipped dj. Poetry by a veteran of the Abraham Lincoln Battalion.

"Rolfe, it should be noted, is one of the politically committed poets whose work largely meets New Critical standards for producing formally coherent, metaphorically inventive, fully realized, and self-sufficient poems. That he is almost wholly excluded from our cultural memory demonstrates that political--not merely purportedly disinterested aesthetic--criteria have helped determine what poets we honor in our texts and literary histories." *Cary Nelson in his book Repression and recovery, modern American poetry and the politics of memory, 1910-1945 - p. 114.
