“’Poetry is the first and last of all knowledge—it is as immortal as the heart of man.’ Its themes are the simplest experiences of the surface of life, sorrow and joy, love and battle, the peace of the country, the bustle and stir of towns, but equally the boldest conceptions, the profoundest intuitions, the subtlest and most complex classifications and ‘discourse of reason’, if into these too the poet can ‘carry sensation’, make of them passionate experiences communicable in vivid and moving imagery, in rich and varied harmonies.” Dusty night black cover with gilt-stamped cover and spine and light scuffing around the book edges. Identity of previous owner stamped on flyleaf and on various pages throughout the publication. Deckle-edged, textured pages, intact binding. Selected and edited by Herbert J.C. Grierson.
