View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This definitive collection is a bumper edition of over 600 pages of published and previously uncollected poems, many illuminated by the poet’s own notes. Harwood’s pseudonymous selves have made literary history, most famously perhaps as Walter Lehmann whose Bulletin acrostic “f*#k” — once deciphered — rocked the Establishment. This collection is the product of diligent research by Harwood scholars Alison Hoddinott and Gregory Kratzmann, both longtime friends of the poet. Their editorial introduction places Gwen Harwood, who died in 1995, among the most formidable literary talents of our age.Roll back, you fabulous animalbe human, sleep. I’ll call you upfrom water’s dazzle, wheat-blond hills,clear light and open-hearted roses,this day’s extravagance of bluestored like a pulse beat in the skull.Gwen Harwood, ‘Carnal Knowledge 1’

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. This generous-sized collection contains all six published volumes, as well as most of Gwen Harwood's uncollected poems. It is the outcome of several years of collecting and research by editors who have specialised in Harwood's work. With an incisive Introduction and extensive notes providing background to particular poems or obscure references, their treatment allows several entry levels into the work of this provocative and multi-talented writer.Harwood's own biographical notes on the pseudonymous selves she adopted in her poems of the 1960s and 1970s add further value. Readers knew them as Walter Lehmann, the Tasmanian farmer and author of the Bulletin hoax acrostic sonnets of 1961; Francis Geyer, the young Hungarian refugee; Miriam Stone, the frustrated housewife; and Timothy Kline, the Vietnam protester. Based on thorough research by editors who knew and corresponded with the late poet, this extraordinary collection contains poems from all of Harwood's published books, a large section of unpublished work, and illuminating editorial comment, as well as the poet's personal notes. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780702233524
