W. H. Davies (1871-1940) was popularly though reductively known as the ‘tramp-poet’ ?due to his remarkable journey from vagrancy, in Britain and the United States, to considerable literary success. ‘Discovered’ in part by Edward Thomas, who admired his poetry, Davies became a prolific memoirist and occasional writer of fiction, criticism and drama. He is now known almost exclusively for a handful of poems and for his memoir The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp; his other writing has long been out of print. This book collects generous selections from Davies’s prose memoir, poetry, and critical prose, alongside comprehensive notes by the editor. It brings back into print the work of a remarkable, controversial and unduly neglected author.

In Black and Gold indicates that opposed styles of poetry reveal subterranean correspondences that occasionally meet and run together. Austerity or tomfoolery are two of the many valid responses to the human condition that create the contiguous traditions that cannot help touching and reacting to each other. The poetry discussed in this book deals with the relation of individuals to strange or to familiar landscapes, and what this means to their own sense of displacement or rootedness; with the use of history as an escape from or as a challenge to an apparently failing present; and with the role of nationalism either as a refuge for angry frustration, or as a weapon against the affronting world, or as an ambivalent loyalty that needs to be scoured, or as all three. Here we find poetry as a means of discovering true or false allegiances and valid or invalid public and private identities; poetry as a medium for exploring the uses of the demotic in confronting the breakdowns and injustices of modern democracy; poetry as play in the midst of private and public woe; poetry as a spiritual quest, as a spiritual scourging, as a wrestling with spiritual absences; and poetry as an intermittent and sporadic commemoration of the triumphs and delights of epiphanic encounters with the physical world.

The Oxford Handbook of William Wordsworth deploys its forty-eight original essays, by an international team of scholar-critics, to present a stimulating account of Wordsworth's life and achievement and to map new directions in criticism. Nineteen essays explore the highlights of a long career systematically, giving special prominence to the lyric Wordsworth of Lyrical Ballads and the Poems in Two Volumes and to the blank verse poet of 'The Recluse'. Most of the other essays return to the poetry while exploring other dimensions of the life and work of the major Romantic poet. The result is a dialogic exploration of many major texts and problems in Wordsworth scholarship. This uniquely comprehensive handbook is structured so as to present, in turn, Wordsworth's life, career, and networks; aspects of the major lyrical and narrative poetry; components of 'The Recluse'; his poetical inheritance and his transformation of poetics; the variety of intellectual influences upon his work, from classical republican thought to modern science; his shaping of modern culture in such fields as gender, landscape, psychology, ethics, politics, religion and ecology; and his 19th- and 20th-century reception-most importantly by poets, but also in modern criticism and scholarship.

"The story of W. H. Davies is one of the most remarkable in twentieth-century letters. Born in lowly circumstances in Newport, he moved to America where he lived as a hobo - a life recorded in Autobiography of a Super-Tramp. During this period he lost a leg falling from a train and, manual work denied to him, Davies re-cast himself as a writer, back in London. A prolific poet, his memorable, accessible verse coincided with the rise of the Georgian Poets and he was championed by Edward Thomas. He became one of the most popular poets in Britain, many of his lines and poems entering the national vocabulary." "Davies also led the bohemian life to the full. Yet this complicated man continued to feel alienated from literary London by his background, and aged fifty, he met and married a twenty-year-old prostitute and went to live in Sussex, and later in Gloucestershire. Here he continued to write poetry and explored his marriage in a book which would eventually be published in 1980, as Young Emma, a classic account of passion and morality." "Davies focuses themes of ethics, sex, creativity, national identity and, above all, class and British society. Lawrence Normand has written a fascinating life of Davies the nature poet and seeker of social justice, and adds to our knowledge of the society in which he created. This welcome book is the first on Davies for many years, and the first to deal with the pivotal volume, Young Emma."--BOOK JACKET.
