Eye-catching binding, dramatic title: what’s not to love? This illustrated poem tells the story of a woman set on saving her lover from being executed by Oliver Cromwell. Note the passionflowers inside: in Victorian flower language, they indicate religious fervor, hinting that her lover may have been a Catholic dissident. (Don’t worry, there’s a happy ending!) ___________ “Curfew Must Not Ring To-Night” by Rosa Hartwick Thorpe (Boston: Lee and Shepard, 1882).
Q: What do Allen Ginsberg, Adrienne Rich, Clarence Major, June Jordan, and E. E. Cummings have in common? ______ A: Their letters are on display starting tomorrow night at BETTISSIMA, our exhibition of treasures from the archives of visionary arts administrator Elizabeth Kray! Join us at 6pm for an opening reception and a look at notes from Marianne Moore, George Oppen, W. H. Auden, and so many more.
