Reader's note

‘What is it to be a poet?’ The question is Lord Dunsany’s, and it stands in the epigraph to the first volume of Edward Marsh’s Georgian Poetry (1911-1912). It stands by virtue of the answer: to be a poet is ‘to see at a glance the glory of the world, to see beauty in all its forms and manifestations, to feel ugliness like a pain, to resent the wrongs of others as bitterly as one’s own, to know mankind as others know single men, to know Nature as botanists know a flower, to be thought a fool, to hear at moments the clear voice of God.’ This vintage book would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
