A Book of Poetic Experiments

First published in 1916, Arthur Ficke co-wrote “Spectra” under the pseudonym Anne Knish. Originally written as a farce of a type of then-famous experimental verse, the assortment of odd poetry surprisingly garnered a great deal of attention and ultimately overshadowed Ficke’s traditional prose writing.

Description

Arthur Davison Ficke (1883–1945) was an American playwright, poet, and Japanese art expert. One of America’s most famous sonnet writers, he was widely regarded as a “poet’s poet” and influenced many other poets of his time. First published in 1916, he co-wrote “Spectra” under the pseudonym Anne Knish. Originally written as a farce of a type of then-famous experimental verse, the assortment of odd poetry surprisingly garnered a great deal of attention and ultimately overshadowed Ficke’s traditional prose writing. Contents include: “Opus 1 – Drums”, “Opus 2 – Hope”, “Opus 6 – If I Were Only Dafter”, “Opus 7 – A Bunch of Grapes”, “Opus 9 – Frogs’ Legs on a Plate”, “Opus 13 – O Peacock-Feather”, “Opus 14 – I Had to Put Out my Leaves”, “Opus 15 – Despair Comes”, “Opus 16 – The Guillotine”, etc. Other notable works by this author include: “From the Isles: A Series of Songs out of Greece” (1907), “The Happy Princess, and Other Poems” (1907), and “Mrs. Morton of Mexico” (1939). Ragged Hand – Read & Co is republishing this collection of classic poetry now in a new edition complete with the essay “Metrical Regularity” by H. P. Lovecraft.
