Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a single volume, the essential work of major Modernist poet and thinker. Some see Laura Riding and Laura (Riding) Jackson as virtually two separate writers, the former a strikingly original Modernist poet and critic, the latter a supposedly reclusive thinker on man and woman, language, meaning, and truth. However, encountering her work in this rich cross-section, one discovers a remarkable consistency of theme developing throughout, from the earliest poems and stories to the "post-poetic" writings of her final years. The selections presented here span sixty-four years (1923-1987) and include famous works of poetry and prose--some long out of print or difficult to find--significant lesser-known writings, and an important previously unpublished late essay, "Body & Mind and the Linguistic Ultimate."

Synopsis:

A rich cross-section of the modernist poet and critic's work from 1923 to 1987.
