Edwin Muir, Man and Poet
Edinburgh: Oliver & Boyd, 1966 First edition. Blue cloth, gilt, index Pagination: viii, 314. This is the most complete study of Edwin Muir yet published. The author has had access to all relevant papers in Mrs Muir’s possession, has examined much of the poet’s other correspondence, and has heard the reminiscences of many people who knew him. With this help, he has sought to achieve a more complete view of Muir’s life and work than that contained in his own autobiographical writings. After giving a full account of Muir’s early life in Orkney and in Glasgow, he explores the ways in which many of his friends and acquaintances reacted to him, and gives, unlike Muir himself, a detailed account of his later life. By relating Muir’s life to his works, he discovers how some of them originated. Among the most valuable parts of the book are the copious extracts from Muir’s own letters, which not only provide new insights into his mind, but show how he himself evaluated his own work. The author concentrates mainly on Muir’s mental and spiritual development and on his poetry, but does not neglect his minor writings and reviews, or his translations.. Book: extremities bumped, endpapers lightly foxed, hint of yellowing to margins of early leaves, VG, Jacket: foxed, dusty, partly browned, edge creasing, VG- (Book ref. 2781) £14.00
