Description


Stevie Smith (1902-1971) is without a doubt one of the most popular British poets of the twentieth century. Her poem Not Waving but Drowning is widely anthologized, and her life was fleshed out in the classic 1978 movie Stevie. Satirical, mischievous, teasing, disarming, her poems take readers from comedy to tragedy and back again, while her line drawings are by turns unsettling and beguiling. In this new and updated edition of her work, Stevie Smith scholar Will May collects Smith's poems and illustrations from her published volumes and provides fascinating details about their provenance, describing the various versions Smith presented on both stage and page. Collected Poems includes over five hundred works from her thirty-five year career.
