Description

Stevenson is most famed for his "A Child's Garden of Verses" but he wrote many other poems of great charm and literary value. This, the first in a two volume collection of Stevenson's poetry, brings a new annotated edition of "A Child's Garden of Verses" together with his other poems, placing the classic in the context of the lesser-known poems. The new edition of "A Child's Garden of Verses" restores the finesse, variety and verbal felicity of the children's classic and sheds light on concepts of childhood, Stevenson's own life and the essential elements of poetic form. A scholarly and lively introduction provides the historical background to the composition and publication of all the poems in this collection, as well as being a useful preliminary to more serious study. "The Collected Poems of Robert Louis Stevenson" is designed to interest the general reader as well as the specialist.show more
