Books Info:

The Complete Shorter Poetry of George Eliot free pdf Academic - Poetry - Nineteenth-Century Literature This two-volume edition brings together all of George Eliot's shorter poetry - not including The Spanish Gypsy which is a whole volume in length and viewed as unsuited for this collection - and supersedes Cynthia Ann Secor's unpublished PhD thesis on this subject, the only authoritative edition of Eliot's poetry. This promises to be the standard edition of her poems for many years to come and will be Indispensable for scholars and general readers alike. The general introduction will discuss Eliot's interest in poetry and verse and its relation to her prose and prose fiction- her recurring themes and motifs- the poetry's critical reception and its value to modern readers. Each poem will have an introduction describing the composition of the poems, where Eliot was at the time, what she was reading, and so on, based on Eliot's own letters, journals and notebooks. The various texts consulted will be listed and textual variants highlighted. And, significantly, notes to help readers better understand Eliot's poetry will also be included - something that no other edition has ever done. Finally, there will be appendices providing the order of poems in the 1874 and 1878 Legend of Tubal, Eliot's essay on 'Versification' and an index of first lines.
