Sacramental Acts: The Love Poems of Kenneth Rexroth

by Kenneth Rexroth
     
 

Poetry. Kenneth Rexroth was by turns a revolutionary and a conservative, simultaneously spiritual and worldly as he created what must be regarded as the most original synthesis of transcendent metaphysical and erotic verse ever written by an American poet. Nowhere is his verse more fully realized than in this collection of nearly 100 love poems.
