About this Item

Anti-war poetry from the First World War. Stewart, the author, was arrested in 1916, probably for having been a conscientious objector. As a Socialist Radical, he may also have been engaged in other anti-government activities that got him into trouble with the law. The poetry he produced in prison is often fluent, even musical and lilting, very much in the tradition of Burns, who clearly was an influence, with one of the poems an explicit re-working of "A Man's a Man for a' That". 8vo. 18.5 by 12.5 cm. 31, [1] pp. Scarce, with only copies found at the British Library and the National Libary of Scotland, based on an OCLC FIrst Search (and a microfilm copy in Gottingen). Soiling on the cover, slight griminess to a few leaves, and age toning generally. Bookseller Inventory # 005109
