From his first publications in the early 1940s, to his final works of the late 1970s, W. S. Graham has given us a poetry of intense power and inquisitive vision - a body of work regarded by many as among the best Romantic poetry of the twentieth century. Graham died in 1986 with much of his work gathered in Collected Poems 1942-1977. However, two posthumous collections - Uncollected Poems (1990) and Aimed at Nobody (1993) - have unearthed a wealth of important new material and heightened the need to retell the full publication story. This New Collected Poems, edited by poet and Graham scholar Matthew Francis and with a foreword by Douglas Dunn, offers the broadest picture yet of Graham's work.
