The Complete Poems, 1927-1979

By Bishop, Elizabeth




Elizabeth Bishop (1911 – 1979) was the Poet Laureate of the United States from 1949 to 1950, a Pulitzer Prize winner in 1956 and a National Book Award Winner for Poetry in 1970.

Her style of writing is well known for its objective, distant point of view, even among her peers in the confessional poetry genre, who used their personal lives and vulnerabilities to inspire their work.

BISHOP, Elizabeth (1911-1979)

London: Chatto & Windus/Hogarth Press, 1983. First Impression. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First British Edition (so stated) of the definitive collection, compiling all of Bishop's poems for the first time. Tall, thick 8vo; [12], 287, [1]pp. Publisher's forest green cloth, the spine lettered gilt within a black title block; the pictorial dust jacket (with a watercolor by Bishop) priced 10.95. A tight, square Fine copy (save for a short word blacked out on the front paste down); in a bright, crisp Fine jacket. "[L]ate in life [Bishop] frequently complained that she simply hadn't written enough. She was a meticulous reviser who found it hard to part with a poem, to accept that it was in its final form. Her final volume, Collected Poems 1927-1979, contains only 71 previously published poems, 21 uncollected and occasional poems, 13 written in youth, and 26 translations from Portuguese, French, and Spanish. This small, sturdy, foundation supports the reputation of a literary giant." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
