Description

A fanciful and imaginative poem about Voltaire, combining fact and fiction. The book initially contained the author's married name, "Laura Riding Gottschalk" but she got a divorce when the book was in press, and since the book was hand- printed it was difficult to change her name and Leonard decided to simply cross "Gottschalk" out, which did not please her.
