A bright and pleasing copy. This copy is inscribed by Robinson Jeffers to his friend and fellow author James M. Hopper. Jeffers inscribed this volume at Tor House, the home he built for his family in Carmel-by-the-Sea in California and the location at which he wrote the majority of his novels. Both Jeffers and Hopper, along with their contemporaries George Sterling, Upton Sinclair, Sinclair Lewis, and Jack London, were part of the group of authors that helped establish Carmel as a literary and artistic refuge in Monterey County. Although neither was a native of California, both Jeffers and Hopper ultimately settled in Carmel. The Women at Point Sur is Jeffers' longest and most ambitious work - "a magnificent narrative almost as long as a novel, fully as interesting as any novel can be, and infinitely more stirring to the mind and senses than any prose." In addition to the titular poem, this volume contains a prologue, which is also written in poetic verse. Unlike many of his other works, The Women at Point Sur is laden with the philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
