London. The Ferry Press. 1971. Ed. of 200. Softcover with paper dust jacket. Jacket cover: Near Fine, bright original cover art, slight marks and fading over time. Book Condition: Near Fine: some toning to pages. 43pp.

This collection of Schjeldahl's poems float between the anxiety of ambivalence and unplanned revelations; little stanzas of three or four lines that trouble the speaker's ideas of others, and ultimately, the way he thinks of himself. His poems stage a challenge to the poet's unconscious questions: what words are even left to talk to a memory, how do you frame old intentions and talk to your friends, how to pin the crazy Schjeldahl identifies as himself to the page. Awfully authentic and in a voice that speaks right to you, "An Adventure of the Thought Police" might be Shjeldahl's response to the dare-to-know epigraph he makes of a stranger's exclamation : "How horrible to have a secret / And not to know what it is!"
