4.0 out of 5 stars A well laid out collection, with some excellent facsimilie reproductions, 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Poems: The Centenary Edition (Paperback)
A real highlight of this publication is the Appendix: Selected Unpublished Manuscript Poems. Each poem is reproduced in facsimilie on the left hand side of the page with the modern text printing on the right hand side. From a poet's perspective it is fascinating to see what appears as, "work in progress" on the facsimilies. Elizabeth is revealed working through her ideas and there are crossings out and amendments aplenty to give clues to her lines of thought in each case. The New and Uncollected sections are also invaluable. I personally like the large, weighty paperback as it gives plenty of space for reproduction of each poem. However, this is quite a, "bulky book" which a largish number of, "white and blank spaces" either on the left hand side, opposite or below the reproduction of certain poems. As a, "voice", Elizabeth's work takes some getting used to. She is said to be the, "poet's poet". However, in this category, I would equally rate Ted Hughes. His collection, "River" must be a master work.
