The ghosts of Jersey City, & other poems by Lillian Morrison( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first collection of poems, Lillian Morrison evokes the experiences and responses of an urban girlhood. In images and rhythms springing from city life, she celebrates existence: construction workers in orange hats, a game of ringaleevio, a skinny stick-ball player homeward bound at twilight, or "a white butterfly on a dandelion." ... Warmly human, vigorous, and tender in turn, her poems vary in mood and in form, but all share an athletic spareness of style. Some explore personal themes and feelings; some take long looks at ordinary people; some reverberate with drumbeats from the past. Direct and unpretentious, they show a felicitous combination of authentic emotion and technical command. --Thomas Y. Crowell Company
