Sorrentino, Gilbert THE ORANGERY
Austin and London: University of Texas Press, (1978). 0292760086 / 9780292760080 First edition, first printing. The University of Texas Press Poetry Series, No. 3. Hardcover. Fine, as-new, in bright orange cloth with black spine stamping; in a fine illustrated dust jacket that shows a whisper of edgewear and a hint of age-toning.
Collection of short poems based on the sonnet form. Each poem is a variation on "orange"--which appears and reappears as a color, a fruit, a memory, an intrusion, a word seeking a rhyme, a presence expected and unexpected.
