9780571136667: Collected Poems 1928-1985

For the revised and enlarged edition of his collected poems - reissued to celebrate his 80th birthday - Stephen Spender has made considerable changes from the text of the original edition of 1955. He has included a number of recent and unpublished poems, discarded several others and recast and rewritten much of the work in the earlier collection. Among recent poems included are remembrances of Louis MacNiece, Igor Stravinsky and W.H.Auden. There are also some early poems based on Rilke, Lorca and Altolguirre and choruses from Sir Stephen's translation of Sophocles' Oedipus trilogy.

About the Author:
Stephen Spender, knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1982 for his contribution to English letters, was editor of the celebrated magazine Horizon and later Encounter. He has written World Within World, an autobiography, as well as numerous works of poetry, drama, criticism, and reportage, and taught at University College and a number of American colleges.

From Library Journal:

ea. vol: Random. 1986. index. $19.95. diaries/poetry A central figure of the Auden generation of the 1930s, Spender has since become a significant voice in modern letters. Collected Poems includes nearly 100 selections ranging from the social, political poetry of the early 1930s to several recent previously unpublished works. Spender has carefully shaped the volume, reworking many earlier poems to achieve directness and clarity. The result is a lean and representative collection that displays the best work of an often-uneven poet. Kept intermittently during 40 years, Spender's journals record details from a full and varied life, observations on politics and literature, friends and literary acquaintances. Goldsmith has selected the material for this volume, and Spender introduces each of the 12 sections with a brief commentary. The book is readable and well suited for browsing, giving readers the pleasure of rubbing shoulders with several literary greats, e.g., T.S. Eliot and Auden. Both books are recommended, especially the new Collected Poems , which is now the definitive edition of Spender's poetry. Michael Hennessy, English Dept., Southwest Texas State Univ., San Marcos
