About the Book

Like any critical edition, this book engages with and acknowledges a number of texts, particularly Verses by E.D.W. (i.e., Elizabeth Dickinson West (1875, 1883). The poet was the student and thereafter the second wife of Edward Dowden, the inspiration behind his posthumous published collection of lyric poems, A Woman's Reliquary (Cuala Press, 1913). This edition of her work is the only one that gathers in one place all of her original poems, including some manuscript versions of published and unpublished work.
