Bachelard, Gaston, 1884-1962. Gilson, Etienne. Jolas, Maria, translator.  
The Poetics of Space. Translated from the French by Maria Jolas. Foreword by Etienne Gilson.

Publisher: Beacon Press, Boston [1969].
xxxv, 241 p.; 20 cm. First published as La poétique de l'espace by Presses Univ. de France, 1958. "In this illuminating and strikingly original work, philosopher Gaston Bachelard, considered by many to be the father of the French new critics, explores the philosophical significance of the various kinds of space that attract and concentrate the poetic imagination. He examines spaces of intimacy and immensity-- rooms, forests, shells, corners, closets-- and seeks to determine how the poetic image is apprehended not by psychology or rationalism, but by recourse to a pure phenomenology that considers the onset of an image in individual consciousness." Contents include The House. From Cellar to Garret. The Significance of the Hut; House and Universe; Drawers, Chests and Wardrobes; Nests; Shells; Corners; Miniature; Intimate Immensity; The Dialectics of Outside and Inside; The Phenomenology of Roundness. Paper; VG. Copy of Albert S. Cook (poet, critic, translator) with his marginal pencil marks. Stock#21893.
