Selections from the Poetry of John Payne free pdf Excerpt from Selections From the Poetry of John Payne The publication of this, the first selected edition of Payne's verse, is an appeal to all lovers of poetry on behalf of one of its uncrowned kings - widely known, it is true, as a translator, but as a poet receiving less than insular recognition. For years we have pored over his five published volumes with wonder and delight- nor have we been able to understand how the English-speaking world can so long have remained in comparative ignorance of their author's genius. At last, upon the publication in London, by the Villon Society, of two quarto volumes, bearing the date 1902 and the title, "The Poetical Works of John Payne," in a limited numbered edition, we have asked for and have been granted permission to offer to American readers such of the poems as in our opinion shall awaken interest and stimulate desire for more. The Villon edition embraces some five thousand lines of new matter, thrown off for the most part between the months of January and March 1902, during a marked visitation of the muse immediately following the completion of an exhaustive translation of the works of the Persian poet Hafiz - a task that for nine years had absorbed the powers, bodily and mental, of the retired London solicitor.
