Description
Among the most popular British poets of the 20th century, with a highly distinctive voice, Stevie Smith (1902–71) is most recognized for her widely anthologized poem "Not Waving but Drowning." Satirical, mischievous, teasing, disarming, Smith's poems take readers from comedy to tragedy and back again, while her line drawings are by turns unsettling and beguiling. This updated edition of Smith's collected poems includes hundreds of works from her 35-year career, gathering poems and illustrations from eight published volumes as well as scores of uncollected and unpublished poems. Smith scholar Will May provides fascinating details about their provenance, and describes the various versions Smith presented.

"A rare bird, a Maltese falcon. A more individual talent than Stevie Smith's you don't get."—The New Yorker

"There is variety and inventiveness, much humor and understanding and a constant poignancy. Her gift was to create a peculiar emotional weather between the words, a sense of pity for what is infringed and unfulfilled. Death, waste, loneliness, cruelty, the maimed, the stupid, the innocent, the trusting—her concerns were central ones, her compassion genuine and her vision almost tragic."—Seamus Heaney
