Arrows in the Gale. Introduction by Helen Keller.
Riverside, CT: Hillacre Bookhouse, 1915. 108p. 21cm. First edition. Paper boards with gilt titling on the front cover. Backstrip chipped away; covers darkened at edges, warped. A fair copy. Giovannitti was a poet, labor writer, orator and labor organizer. He joined the Industrial Workers of the World in 1900 and was one of the leaders of the Lawrence (Massachusetts) textile mill strike in 1912. The strike, marked by planting dynamite -- at first blamed on :Wbblies" but later traced to mill owners -- did much to discredit violent tactics used by management in the early years of the American labor movement. During the strike a woman was fatally shot. Giovannitti and another strike leader were arrested and charged with being accessories to murder. Although later acquitted, during his imprisonment Giovannitti was inspired by the constant pacing of a fellow prison in the cell directly above his -- and his best known poem, "The Walker," was written.
