Second issue of the Fantasy Press's New Poems magazine. Early-career poems by all contributors: Adrienne Rich's first collection had just appeared two years prior, and "The Snow Queen," printed in this issue, would be her first poem to appear in The Paris Review a year later. The debut collections of Geoffrey Hill and Robert Bly would not appear until seven and ten years later, respectively.
