Frances Cornford: Selected Poems
Her books have been out of print for thirty years -- this brings her finest poetry to a generation of new readersFrances Cornford (18861960) was the granddaughter of Charles Darwin, and also related to William Wordsworth. In 1928, Cornford's Different Days was the first in the Hogarth Living Poets series published by Virginia and Leonard Woolf. Her Collected Poems (1954) was the choice of the Poetry Book Society and in 1959 she was awarded the Queen's Gold medal for Poetry. Dowson's fascinating introduction gives new interpretations of Cornford's works.
