Scope and Contents

This book consists of a long, autobiographical poem which is printed in a linear manner as brief phrases separated by four spaces. The cover that depicts a Kabbalistic, surrealistic landscape image was designed by John Brandi. The Sackner Archive holds two versions of this poem which are presented as large handwritten copies that incorporate large Hebrew letters and visual images overlaid on the pages or Hebrew letters confined to the top third of the page, respectively. In the early seventies, at the time that the handwritten copies were made, Hirschman was at the peak of his Kabbalistic period. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
