This 1991 Oxford University Press collection of Reed's poems is in very good condition, including a very good jacket, not price clipped.
Henry Reed (1914-86) , author of "Naming of Parts", probably the most anthologised poem of the Second World War, is too often remembered for only that. In addition to "A Map of Verona" and the sequence "Lessons of War", he wrote numerous radio plays for the BBC and was also a fine translator.
On his death Reed left behind a sheaf of uncollected poems that had appeared in magazines and some still in manuscript. These together with all the published work, a group of translations, a selection of songs from the radio plays, and a number of drafts and fragments, complete this volume. Full list of contents in photos attached.
Jon Stallworthy, poet, critic, biographer of Wifred Owen, has had access to Reed's manuscripts and has written a biographical and critical introduction.The volume also contains notes on the poems.
