Item #8973 Striations. George-Thérèse Dickenson.


Boston: The Good Gay Poets, 1976. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher's stiff illustrated paper wraps.

Lesbian poet, editor, and activist George-Thérèse Dickenson’s first book. A Wellesley graduate, Dickenson became involved in anarchist politics after meeting political philosopher Murray Bookchin in the early 1970s. She became connected with members of the queer poetry scene in Boston, including Charles Shively of post-Stonewall periodical Fag Rag. This volume, which comprises a selection of Dickenson's poems that originally appeared in underground periodicals, was published by the Fag Rag Collective's Good Gay Poets (a pun on Whitman’s designation as the "Good Gray Poet"). One of 500 unnumbered copies. Some rubbing to wraps. Very good. Item #8973
