The Complete Poems of Basil Bunting (1900-85) is a new edition of his Collected Poems combined with Richard Caddel's scrupulously prepared Uncollected Poems (Oxford Poets, 1991). The independence of the two books is maintained in this volume so as to leave no doubt as to Bunting's own choice of his work. Only a very few extra pieces are now added: two pieces of juvenilia, and a couple of limericks. The Pious Cat, a fable for children transposed from a Persian to a Northumbrian setting, is put in its rightful place
Basil Bunting on poetry by Basil Bunting( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A close poetic ally of Ezra Pound and Louis Zukofsky, the British poet Basil Bunting is best known for his use of specific musical form in poetry." "Basil Bunting on Poetry collects two series of lectures that Bunting delivered in 1968 and 1974. Tracing the development of an English poetry governed by families of stress-groups from Beowulf down to Wyatt, Wordsworth, Whitman, Pound, and Zukofsky, the lectures focus on writing and hearing poetry rather than on literary-historical concerns."--Jacket

"He was a man of many parts who had an amazing helter-skelter of a life. The author of Briggflatts, hailed as the greatest long poem produced in Britain since T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets, Basil Bunting (1900-85) was also a sea captain, a music critic, an RAF Squadron Leader, a convict, a political correspondent for The Times, a builder's labourer, and a British intelligence agent specializing in the Middle East."--Jacket

Basil Bunting's work was published haphazardly throughout most of his life, and in many cases he did not oversee publication. This is the first critical edition of the complete poems, and offers an accurate text with variants from all printed sources. Don Share annotates Bunting's often complex and allusive verse, with much illuminating quotation from his prose writings, interviews and correspondence. He also examines Bunting's use of sources (including Persian literature and classical mythology), and explores the Northumbrian roots of Bunting's poetic vocabulary and use of dialect
