Signed by Author on inside front cover with Presentation note, with date. From library of Henriette Palmer, who designed many books endorsed by the Pennsylvania Poetry Society. 1st Printing. Nice Firm Clean copy ! Scarce. 36 pages. 'Counterpoint' is endorsed for merit by the Pennsylvania Poetry Society. Amelia Reynolds Long (1904-1978) [Aka A. R. Long, Peter Reynolds, Patrick Laing] was an American detective fiction and science fiction writer, novelist and poet. Her story, 'The Thought-Monster' was made into the 1958 film Fiend Without a Face. She co-wrote the 1936 novel Behind the Evidence with William L. Crawford under the combined pseudonym Peter Reynolds. Long's first poem, 'Lucifer's Reply,' was published in Kaleidograph in the early 1930's. It won first prize in a contest and remains a quite startling piece. After quitting the fields of mysteries and science fiction, poetry became Long's predominant interest, and she continued to write poems for the rest of her life. A number of her poems were published in various journals and periodicals such as the Nutmegger, Encore, The Harrisburg Evening News and The Swordsman Review. The Pennsylvania Poetry Society, of which she was a member, printed two chapbook collections of her previously published poetry work in 1974 (Shreds and Patches) and 1975 (Counterpoint). Her name lives on in the Pennsylvania Poetry Society's Amelia Reynolds Long Memorial Award. It is clear that Long had a gift for creating works of studied beauty, with an often poignant, human touch. Her two poetry collections remain rare and elusive gems that deserve a wider audience. Contents: Counterpoint, Cain, Lot's Wife, Our Ghosts Draw From the Crowded Future, I Dreamed of Long Dead Cities, Lucifer's Reply, On a Roman Tear Vase, Candle, The Paxtang Indian Path, Paxtang's Fighting Parson, Betsy Ross Undertakes to Make the American Flag, Soldier in Grease Paint, The Gleam, the Glory..., Should We Feel Shame, Ave Atque Vale Aves, The Shooting of Wild Bill Hickok, On the Death of Walt Disney, First Man on the Moon, Fallen Star, To My Friend E.P.L. and My Dog Mike, I Love Old Things, Flower Song, Excalibur, Son of the Sidh, An Irish American Dreams of Ireland, Sounds of Splendor, Sault Sainte Marie, The Mastodon's Complaint, Johan Printz, Two Sides of the Coin, Too Be or Not To Be, A Rose Is a Rose Is a..., Modern Theme to Ancient Music, He May Fly High, To Meter Not to Mete, Doggone!, Basis for Concern, The Wicked Flea, Geographically Speaking, Milady's Corset.
