Out of Africa, Karen Blixen's (Meryl Streep) Book of Poems

original movie prop

Karen Blixen's (Meryl Streep) book of poems used in the 1985 Sydney Pollack classic Out Of Africa. This vintage book was specially adapted for used by the bereaved Karen to read from, with several select poems typed and subtly inserted into the book into pages 201 (A.E Housman's 'To An Athlete Dying Young), read from at Deny's (Robert Redford) grave, and 93 (A.E Housman's 'LIV. With rue my heart is laden'). The cover has also been adapted to have “Housman” as the title and the original author of the actual book (Thomas Hood) has been removed, only “Poems” remains on the spine. The book is seen on several occasions and for such a vintage book it is very unlikely that there would have been more than one, making this something of a rarity. [PSoL]
