The Complete Poems of D. H. Lawrence: Two Volumes (Edited by Vivian de Sola Pinto & Warren Roberts) soon to be presented for sale on the impressive BookLovers of Bath web site!
Published: London: Heinemann, 1972, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: These two volumes, now in their third edition, can be regarded as the definitive edition of Lawrences poetry.
Besides the poems originally collected the volumes include a section of Uncollected Poems from printed and manuscript sources, an appendix of juvenilia consisting of previously unpublished poems and a further appendix containing variants and early drafts. Twelve early poems from the recently discovered Clarke Notebook, which belonged formerly to Lawrences sister Mrs Ada Clarke, are new to this edition.
All Lawrences critical Introductions to his poems, including the important Introduction to the American edition of New Poems (1918), are printed in the appropriate places. The text has been carefully revised, and corrected, wherever possible, from original manuscripts or from editions for which Lawrence himself was responsible. There is a general critical Introduction by V. de S. Pinto, and full textual and explanatory notes, containing a wealth of illustrative material. A glossary has been added to help the reader with the dialect and foreign words which occur in the poems.Very Good in Good Dust Wrapper.
