Burns' Night Heard || Robert Grenier

I was super pleased to find one of these in the flesh at Jeff Maser's shop the other day (there are a few left if you're interested...). Published by Tansy Press in April of 1982 (printed by John Moritz? w/ the help of Lee Chapman?), the back blurb reads: Robert Grenier wrote of this piece as "...a sort of visitation by 'Burns' /the spirit of the work so heard through poems read aloud in the Scots on the night of his birth etc. -started me off happily reading R.B. beyond anthologies for the first time. Much more to be said there, but as you like it, space this out."
