Some brief overview of book

The second volume of the first paperback edition of The Poems of T. S. Eliot This two-volume critical edition of T.

S. Eliots poems establishes a new text of the Collected Poems 19091962, rectifying accidental omissions and errors that have crept in during the century since Eliots astonishing debut, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." In addition to the masterpieces, The Poems of T.

S. Eliot contains the poems of Eliots youth, which were rediscovered only decades later; poems that circulated privately during his lifetime; and love poems from his final years, written for his wife, Valerie. Calling upon Eliots critical writings as well as his drafts, letters, and other original materials, Christopher Ricks and Jim McCue have provided a commentary that illuminates the imaginative life of each poem.

Following the collected and uncollected poems of the first volume, this second volume opens with the two books of verse of other kinds that Eliot issued the childrens verse of Old Possums Book of Practical Cats, and Anabasis, his translation of St.-John Perses Anabase. This volume then gathers the verses that Eliot contributed to the learnedly lighthearted exchanges of Noctes Binanian, and others that he wrote off-the-cuff or for intimate friends. Each of these sections is accompanied by its own commentary.

Finally, pertaining to the entire edition, there is a comprehensive textual history that contains not only variants from all known drafts and the many printings but also extended passages amounting to hundreds of lines of compelling verse.
