Basil Bunting - The Poems PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Basil Bunting - The Poems free pdf Basil Bunting's work was published haphazardly throughout most of his life, and in many cases he did not oversee publication. This is the first critical edition of the complete poems, and offers an accurate text with variants from all printed sources. Don Share annotates Bunting's often complex and allusive verse, with much illuminating quotation from his prose writings, interviews and correspondence. He also examines Bunting's use of sources (including Persian literature and classical mythology), and explores the Northumbrian roots of Bunting's poetic vocabulary and use of dialect.

About Basil Bunting

Don Share is Poetry Editor of Harvard Review and Curator of the Woodberry Poetry Room at Harvard University, where he also teaches. He will shortly take up a new position as Senior Editor of Poetry (Chicago). Basil Bunting was born in Northumberland in 1900. He was imprisoned for six months during the First World War as a conscientious objector and, after a wandering existence in Europe, in 1923 met Ezra Pound, who published his early poetry in Active Anthology (1933). He worked as a translator in Persia in the Second World War, returning to Britain in 1952. Although his first collection of poems was published in 1950, it wasn't until 1964 that he received widespread attention in Britain, with the publication of The Spoils, First Book of Odes and Loquitur. The publication of his most famous work, Briggflats (1966), led to an Arts Council Bursary and a Northern Arts Poetry Fellowship at the universities of Durham and Newcastle. He died in 1985.
