Meditations | R.C. Dunning

Much has been said of the late Ralph Cheever Dunning, though all that was said has not been repeated for what is now nigh a century. Since his death in anno Domini 1930, Dunning has been wholly forgotten save for those familiar with his inclusion Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast. Whether or not Dunning deserves to be remembered is a topic for a full length essay, one which is currently being written by the editor of this review, but for now, a look at one of Dunning’s better poems should suffice. “Meditations” is surprisingly moving piece composed by the infamous dope fiend of Montparnasse, and is definitely worth a read, even if solely for curiosity’s sake.
