Selected Poems of Eugene Lee-Hamilton (1845-1907)
2002 0-7734-7305-X
This selection is designed to display the range of Eugene Lee-Hamilton’s verse at its best. Though this late-Victorian poet was praised by reviews of his own day, including John Addington Symonds, and is represented in modern Oxford and Penguin anthologies, there has been no 20th century collection of his poems. This volume has a long introduction summarizing Lee-Hamilton’s strange life, outlining his poetic development, and placing his verse in its 19th century context. Notes record the textual sources of all poems and discuss Lee-Hamilton’s revisions.
