9781857549478: Collected Poems: Sylvia Townsend Warner

Both stimulating and engaging, these poems display an astonishing capacity for wit, rich observations, and the cadences of poetic language. Documenting the life of Sylvia Townsend Warner, these poems emphasize her gift for music while exploring life, communist sympathies, and above all, the anguish and liberation of her great love affair with fellow poet Valentine Ackland.

Book Description Carcanet Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first Collected Poems of Sylvia Townsend Warner (1893-1978) was published by Carcanet in 1982. Since then, more of her work has come to light, including some of the most moving and personal poems she ever wrote. Claire Harman, the original editor and author of the prize-winning biography of the poet, has substantially revised the earlier edition, including over ninety previously uncollected and unpublished poems, with expanded notes, a chronology and an authoritative new introduction. When Harman s Life was published, it restored Warner, one critic said, to her real place as second only to Virginia Woolf among the women writers of our century . With this collection, the extent of Warner s achievement as a poet can be appreciated. Bookseller Inventory # UGH9781857549478
