Published in 1959, EPOS Vol. 10, No. 4, featured the Bukowski poem:


The poem would later appear in Bukowski's first book, Flower, Fist and Bestial Wail (1960), and The Roominghouse Madrigals (1988).

EPOS: A Quarterly of Poetry was a journal edited by Evelyn Thorne and Will Tullos out of Cresent City, Florida. The first issue appeared in Fall 1949 and was published until the 1970s.

Bukowski would appear in 12 issues of EPOS between 1959 and 1970. One 'extra' issue of Epos was entirely devoted Bukowski, entitled "Poems and Drawings". Released in 1962, it is considered Bukowski's sixth poetry collection.

This issue represents Bukowski’s 29th appearance in any poetry journal.

This copy is in Near Fine condition with some inevitable light browning to the covers.

Overall, a beautiful copy of this early supporter of Bukowski’s work.
