This first edition of Gissing's poems is based upon a transcription of the MS notebook "Verses 1869 to [1882]", held by the Beinecke Library of Rare Books and Manuscripts at Yale University, and a variety of other sources, printed or autograph. The volume consists of over 50 titles, ranging from youthful experiment to the achievement of maturer years. An introduction points out the intimate and revealing links between Gissing's life and letters, particularly during the fateful spring and summer of 1876 and his subsequent journey to America. This volume provides a unique insight into the heart and mind of a talented late-Victorian young man, determined to chart for himself a career as a poet/man of letters.
