Product Description

About the Author

Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was born in Charlton, Kent. In 1890, aged sixteen, he began work in the statistics department of the London office of Anglo-American Oil. In 1907 he published his first collection of poems under the pseudonym Walter Ramal, but he soon established a wide popular reputation in his own name as a leading poet of the Georgian period with volumes like The Listeners (1912), Motley (1918) and The Veil (1921). He also wrote poetry and short stories for younger readers; Peacock Pie (1913), a collection of poems for children, is now considered a twentieth-century classic.

Format: Hardcover
Note that what I got is a rather nasty print-on-demand copy of the Faber edition, not the Faber edition as described.

The book looks indeed like a print-on-demand job, operated by CPI Antony Rowe. So much for Amazon's notice. Wouldn't that be I'd have given five stars.
Anyway, I don't know how the original Faber&Faber book looks like, but I'm pretty satified with this copy. Well, what could I say? It looks like all De La Mare poetry is in there, that's what I paid for and that's what I got!
The work is presented chronologically, divided in six categories (collected, uncollected, unpublished, from miscellaneous works, written to illustrations and nonsense) with, at the end, a bibliographical appendix, index of titles, first lines and books.

"I sat so still in the garden
That wasp and leaf and bird
Seemed as I dreamed the only things
That had ever stirred."

Very good book - I'd recommend for all de la Mare fans. Exactly what it says on the cover - very interesting - good layout - easy to read text - good editorial introduction. Very pleased I bought it. The poems are printed chronologically, and are kept in their relevant collections. There are also "uncollected" and "unpublished" poems. The Bibliographical appendix is very informative. A great book - love it!
