With Music in Mind. Motive and Method. An Essay in Two Parts with a Supplement of Fourteen Poems

[London]: Privately Printed, [1959]. Foolscap format, 20 leaves, mimeographed from typescript on rectos only, side-stapled, and backed in black cloth tape.

A remarkable two part essay, followed by a selection of poems, by this key figure in British Bohemia, in which she calls for poetry performance to be remade with influences from skiffle and jazz. Orton was a collaborator with Marian Gray, Wally Whyton (of the Skiffle group The Vipers) and numerous others, at such clubs as Toni's, The Alexandria, and The French.

A key work which should be far better known.

Near fine with some minor toning and creasing. Item #28506
