P. J. Kavanagh, "Not Being a Man of Action" (1967)

Editorial Note

  • While Spiegelgasse 14 is not explicitly mentioned in Kavanagh's poem, it is so strongly associated with Lenin in Zurich that it makes sense to 'locate' the poem there as well – and not only at the Zentralbibliothek ("Public Library").
