Laurence Hope-"India's Love Lyrics"-1924-Dodd Mead Co-4" X 6"-181 pages-Leather Covered Book-With Embossed Cover-Signed By Author.The poetry of Laurence Hope holds a unique place in modern literature. No other writer has caught so vividly the dominant notes of Indian love poetry -- its delicious absorption in the pleasures of the present, its out-of-door air, its melancholy, its poignant sense of the fleeting moment of love. It is almost inconceivable that a non-Indian could imprison in words this tropical lusuriance ans Sapphic fervor so exactly and so beautifully. Even today, many years after first publication, it is not known how much in these poems is essentially translation and how much is original. But edition after edition have come off the presses to meet the demands of those who, living in other lands, have the taste to understand and the desire to know the passion and beauty of the East. The book has been autographed on the title page by Laurence Hope with a fountain pen in brown...............BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN AVERAGE CONDITION................
