Selected poems, in five sets by Laura Riding( Book )

15 editions published between 1970 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laura (Riding) Jackson is recognized as one of America's great modernist poets although she renounced the writing of poetry in 1941, viewing poetry as "blocking truth's ultimate verbal harmonies." First published in England in 1970 and long out of print, Selected Poems: In Five Sets includes sixty-one poems personally selected and arranged by the author. Drawn from her Collected Poems of 1938, this is a remarkable distillation of Laura Riding's poetic achievement. The extraordinary preface is perhaps Laura (Riding) Jackson's most succinct explanation of her renunciation of the writing of poetry, and is a provocative commentary on the contemporary poetry scene. --Persea Books
A survey of modernist poetry by Laura Riding( Book )

23 editions published between 1927 and 1977 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The books paired here make up the first collaborative study of 'Modernist' poetry by two of the twentieth century's most important and original poets. In A Survey of Modernist Poetry, Laura Riding and Robert Graves produce a contemporary reaction to the early experimentation of writers such as Eliot, Pound and e.e. cummings. Their close critical readings are deployed, along the way, in an engagement with Shakespeare scholarship, issues of populism and elitism and an attempt to define - perhaps to invent - that elusive creature known as 'the common reader'." "The Survey contains readings of modern poems and movements and is an illuminating and polemical account of the beginnings of modernism. It is an important resource but also a valuable critical text in the reception and development of modernist poetry in English. A Pamphlet Against Anthologies is an entertaining polemic against the perceived iniquities of the trade anthology. A statement of poetic integrity, it poses awkward questions about the production and consumption of art in the mass markets of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries."--Jacket

This new edition of Contemporaries and Snobs, a landmark collection of essays by Laura Riding, offers a counter-history of high modernist poetics. Laura Riding's Contemporaries and Snobs (1928) was the first volume of essays to engage critically with high modernist poetics from the position of the outsider. For readers today, it offers a compelling account-by turns personal, by turns historical-of how the institutionalization of modernism denuded experimental poetry. Most importantly, Contemporaries and Snobs offers a counter-history of the idiosyncratic, of

Anarchism is not enough by Laura Riding( Book )

10 editions published between 1928 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anarchism Is Not Enough is a manifesto against systematic thinking, a difficult book by a famously difficult writer. For the scope of its critical imagination, it is the most radical work of Laura Riding's early period. Published in 1928, when Riding was twenty-seven, Anarchism is a kind of early autobiographia literaria. Long out of print and now available for the first time in paperback, this is one of the most imaginative and daring works of literary theory ever written by a modernist figure."--Jacket
