The Edge Of Being by Stephen Spender hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
Faber & Faber, 1949, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: When we brought out Mr. Spenders Poems of Dedication two years ago, we wrote: This is Mr. Spenders first volume of poems in five years. It represents only a part of his work during that time, but a part which forms a unity by itself and which must therefore appear as a volume by itself.
During these two years, Mr. Spender, in addition to his other activities, has spent much time lecturing in America, and his output has been small. But we think that this more varied selection which he has made, of poems of the same period and later than Poems of Dedication, will fully support his reputation and satisfy his admirers.
