Note: this unpublished typescript variant of 'Alpine' was sent by George Oppen in 1968-9 to Walter Hamady of the Perishable Press as part of a five page manuscript for the book Alpine (1969). There are three variants to the poem. The first was printed in This in Which (1965). The present example was a revised version. Oppen then made further revisions to the poem, which he sent to Hamady, and which was subsequently the final version as it appeared in Alpine, and in all subsequent appearances. (For the final version, see Oppen's New Collected Poems, p. 134). Reproduced with permission from the owner (private collection).
