THE SELECTED POEMS of D. H. Lawrence
Lawrence's greatness as a novelist has overshadowed the worth of his poetry, Were he known only for his poetry he would rank with the chief poets of his time. Nevertheless his influence on young poets today is considerable. Lawrence's verse is scattered through several volumes which are rather difficult to obtain. Hence the need for this compact selection, which represents the best of his many different periods and tendencies. Lawrence's early poems show a slight influence of Hardy, but it was not long before he developed a style and idiom completely his own, as unique as his ideas. He first wrote in rhymed meters, but later moved on to free verse; it was, however, a free verse that was deeply structured and controlled. An interesting feature of this selection is the group of poems from Lawrencels novel, The Plumed Serpent. Little regarded as poetry because they are part of the novel, they are among Lawrence's most impressive verse. Kenneth Rexroth has contributed a long essay which is revolutionary in its interpretation of Lawrence's thought.
