Baskin & Hughes : Pike: A Poem

<<  >>

“Pike: A Poem” was the first collaboration between Baskin and Ted Hughes. Gehenna Press printed the poem as a broadside, illustrated with a woodcut by Robert Birmelin. In the twentieth century the broadside format became a favorite means of publishing single poems in an artistic format.
