JOSEPHINE MILES
The American poet penned her signature on this typed copy of her poem "Find"
Poem Signed: "Signed for Rosemarie Tudors/ Josephine Miles". 8½x11. One page. Poem "Find" in full: "Diligent in the burnt fields above the sea/ The boy searches for what, sticks,/ Cans; he walks like a rider/ The rough and stumpy ground. / And finds all morning while the sun/ Travels to crest,/ a blooming fullness of day,/ Just one ant-paste spike, rusted./ Says the boy with relish, Poison. / Often at night his fears have told him these/ Dooms to find in the hills, and his heart lightens/ To find them there in fact, black as intended,/ But small enough". Josephine Miles (1911-1985) was a poet and literary critic who lived most of her life in California. She was the first tenured female professor in the English Department at the University of California, Berkeley. Despite her lifelong disability that confined her to a wheelchair, she spent decades writing, teaching, and voicing her learned critical analysis on numerous literary works, especially those considered part of the Beat Movement. Mailing creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
