Edgar Allan Poe & the Juke-Box: Uncollected Poems, Drafts, and Fragments

Edgar Allan Poe & the Juke-Box: Uncollected Poems, Drafts, and Fragments Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the mid-1930s to 1978 Elizabeth Bishop published some ninety poems and thirty translations. Yet her notebooks reveal that she embarked upon many more compositions, some existing in only fragmentary form and some embodied in extensive drafts. Edgar Allan Poe & The Juke-Box presents, alongside facsimiles of many notebook pages from which they are drawn, poems Bishop began soon after college, reflecting her passion for Elizabethan verse and surrealist technique; love poems and dream fragments from the 1940s; poems about her Canadian childhood; and many other works that heretofore have been quoted almost exclusively in biographical and critical studies.
 
This revelatory and moving selection brings us into the poet's laboratory, showing us the initial provocative images that moved Bishop to begin a poem, illustrating terrain unexplored in the work published during her lifetime. Editor Alice Quinn has also mined the Bishop archives for rich tangential material that illuminates the poet's sources and intentions.

Synopsis:

Gathering Bishop's unpublished material for the first time, this revelatory and moving selection enters her laboratory, showing the initial provocative images that moved the poet to begin writing and illustrating terrain unexplored in the work published during her lifetime.
