5.0 out of 5 stars A major modern poet, 14 Sep 2008
By 
This review is from: The Annotated Collected Poems (Paperback)
Edna Longley's new edition of Edward Thomas's poetry is a joy - generous in every way, in size, elegant Paul Nash cover(they were wartime friends) and above all is the full and convincing commentary on poems, especially those which show Thomas's dialectical working-out of dilemmas and decisions. Her exploration of the background to the poems in prose writing, letters and notebooks creates an intriguing picture of this complex, gifted writer whose life was so sadly cut short just two years after he began writing poetry.

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality collection and critique, 29 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Annotated Collected Poems (Paperback)
This book not only has all of his poems in authorial order, but also has detailed notes to go with each poem. The notes contained not only allow you to understand the poem at a higher level of detail but also informs you of the origin and creation of the poem. The biography and notes are written with clarity and are easy to follow. This is an excellent purchase for those studying Edward Thomas at A level and above.

I've loved the poetry of Edward Thomas since the first time I read him.

This annotated version provides lots of interesting insights on many of the poems, including extensive quotes from relevant previous notes and writings. The poems are also complete and in chronological order which is also extremely interesting and useful - if you'd like to get to know this remarkable body of work

4.0 out of 5 stars Annnotated poems of Edward Thomas, 24 Mar 2013

This review is from: The Annotated Collected Poems (Paperback)
An almost great poet whom I have known for many years. Not a 'War Poet' of WW1, although often considered to be as he was killed in that war and wrote a few poems about it. Some delightful poetry of the English countryside.

Having been born and bred a short distance from his former homes I must confess bias, however this is a fine collection of poems.
Not all are war poetry.
