First edition. The majority of this collection of poems was written between 1909 and 1915, and can be seen, according to Bely, as ‘a transition from the gloomy despair of The Urn [1909] to the consciousness of The Star [not published until 1922]; awakening from the unconsciousness of the grave to vital life, Life itself sounds like a fairy tale’.

Kilgour 185; Tarasenkov p. 53.
