Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A masterful job of contemporary scholarly editing, this book begins an edition intended to clarify a 'Jeffers canon,' establishing for times to come the verse legacy of a poet who looked on all things with the eyes of eternity."—San Francisco Chronicle

"This edition will be standard . . . a tribute and justice to a poet whose independent strength has survived to challenge personal and public canons."—Virginia Quarterly Review

"Jeffers is the last of the major poets of his generation—Frost, Stevens, Williams, Pound, Moore, Eliot—to get his collected poems. Now that the job is at hand, it is done very well. . . . Tim Hunt has been painstaking in his editorial preparation and judicious in his presentation. . . . A great poet is ready for his due."—Philadelphia Inquirer

"Few American poets are treated as well by publishers as Jeffers is by Stanford University Press. . . . These poems represent a distinctive voice in the American canon, and it is good to have them so wonderfully set forth."—Christian Century

Booknews
Volume four is part of a five-volume set, one of the few works devoted to the collected poems of this American poet. This volume is in three parts. First, the poems written when Jeffers was a college student; two early collections, and ; and poems never published or recently rediscovered. Second, "Introductions, Forewords, and Miscellaneous Prose, 1920-1948" gathers all of Jeffers's major prose. Finally, "Unpublished Poems and Fragments, 1910-1962" comprises material never published and material Jeffers probably never tried to publish. The next and last volume of the set will contain commentary and transcriptions of alternate and discarded passages and of working notes. These are beautifully-produced volumes. Annotation c.
