Beloved writer Edward Thomas is best known for his evocative poetry, though his writing career was varied and prolific, with more than two thousand reviews and nearly thirty volumes of topography, biography, and literary criticism published by the time of his death at age thirty-nine in World War I. After years of writing about poetry, Thomas, an intensely contemplative man who believed deeply in the power of perambulation, was encouraged by his close friend Robert Frost to write his own verse. This stunning collection includes some of his most treasured work and will bring Thomas’s extraordinary writings to a new generation of readers and aspiring writers.
