This comprehensive and welcoming edition draws on the whole of Stevie Smith’s output in poetry, prose and drawings from Novel on Yellow Paper (1936) to Scorpion and Other Poems (1972). Hermione Lee’s introduction and arrangement bring out the connections between Stevie Smith’s different writings, and show us what an extraordinary and original writer she was. The selection is complemented by biographical and textual notes, and forms an attractive introduction to the work of an idiosyncratic English genius.
