Selected Poems: Jean Bleakney
With a smartly devised introduction, Thompson presents poet Thelwall famously brave political activist in the range and originality of the genres he exercised and transformed: pastoral and peripatetic, comic ballads, satires and seditious allegories, sonnets routine and innovative, odes public and Pindaric , conversation poems, effusions, love songs, epic and autobiography, and essays on poetic principles.

This new selected edition, then, is a much broader, more accurate representation of Jeffers's career than the previous Selected Poetry.
Now that the job is at hand, it is done very well. Tim Hunt has been painstaking in his editorial preparation and judicious in his presentation.
A great poet is ready for his due. These poems represent a distinctive voice in the American canon, and it is good to have them so wonderfully set forth.
As editor Tim Hunt observes, Jeffers's work demands more than just simple contemplation of nature, but rather 'identifying with it and recognizing one's final and inevitable participation in it.
