Collected Poems and Translations
The complete works of Veronica Forrest-Thomson
First edition, first printing, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 15cm, 286pp with loose sheet of additional notes.
From the dustwrapper, "This volume makes available again all the poems contained in the author's five books and pamphlets from Identi-Kit (1967) through the award winning Language-Games (1971) to On the Periphery (published posthumously in 1976), together with a great many unpublished or uncollected poems. Also included is her unpublished translation of poetry and critical theory from the French." The author was born in 1947, studied at Liverpool and Cambridge and worked as a poet and critical theorist. She died in 1975.
This copy is in very good condition, with just a few spots to front panel of the dustwrapper which is now within a protective sleeve.
