The Annotated Collected Poems by Edward Thomas and edited by Edna Longley (Paperback) (9781852247461)

Advances Edward Thomas' reputation as a modern poet. This work contains substantial quotations from Thomas' prose, letters and notebooks, as well as a commentary on the poems. It also shows how Thomas' criticism feeds into his poetry, and how he prefigured critical approaches, such as 'ecocriticism', that are now applied to his poems.


Edna Longley also shows how Thomas' criticism feeds into his poetry, and how he prefigured critical approaches, such as 'ecocriticism', that are now applied to his poems. The text of this edition, which has a detailed textual apparatus, differs in small but significant ways from that of other extant collections of Thomas' poems. "The Bloodaxe" edition is larger (with more comprehensive notes) than Faber's "Collected Poems" by Edward Thomas as well as a pound cheaper. More importantly, for academic sales, the "Bloodaxe" text is more authoritative than Faber's (which uses R. George Thomas' 1978 text).Edna Longley has used manuscripts, proofs and newly available archive material to establish a text for Edward Thomas' complete poetry which will now be used by scholars and students in all future discussions of his work.
