I downloaded this whilst on holiday and reading Matthew Hollis Now All Roads Lead to France: The Last Years of Edward Thomas, a wonderful account of Thomas' friendship with Frost and move from prose to poetry. So many cheap collections of poetry are poorly formatted and proof-read, but this has been an excellent purchase. The poetry, of course, is wonderful, and any Kindle owner not familiar with too many of the writer's pieces need not hesitate in 'investing' a mere 0.86 to access some deeply affecting poems. A bargain!

I'm sure everyone who did Eng Lit at school will remember Adlestrop and the blackbird singing 'and round him, mistier,/ Farther and farther, all the birds/Of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.' But here is Edward Thomas's poetry complete and full of riches. Thomas was essentially a writer about the English and Welsh countryside, initially in prose but then in the last two years of his life in this outpouring of beautiful, understated poems. He observed the countryside and its characters in all weathers and all seasons. He has long been one of my favourite poets and I find I can always go to his poems and find something relevant to now in both time and feeling. I'm writing this review in late winter so how good to be able to turn to his great poem March; 'Now I know that spring will come again.'
This Kindle edition is really good. There is just the poetry, no editorial matter, but it is well formatted and easily navigable to individual poems.

This is a beautiful, meticulous collection of Edward Thomas's wonderful poetry. My only slight complaint is that it is too faithful to the presentation of poems in Thomas's original typescripts. I would have preferred something more clean-cut and modern, rather than the fussy use of square brackets and line numbers, especially as so many of the pieces are only 10 or 20 lines long.

I have only recently discovered Edward Thomas. He is considered a War poet but so far I see very little that relates directly to war. However he is a beautiful writer and and many modern poets consider he was a powerful influence on modern poetry from TS Eliot on. If you love poetry you
will enjoy him.

My opinions are no different to the millions of others who have been rewarded by the fine and spiritual / nature associated poetry of Edward Thomas. He is simply a wonderful poet.
