D. H. Lawrence wrote his first two poems at the age of nineteen, and from that time on, poems flowed from him. . . . Many of Lawrence's 'rhyming poems' are enchanting, but his real voice is heard only when he writes without the restrictions of rhyme, when nothing gets between himself and the poems. Some of his poems are simple statements, written as though he were talking to the reader as a good friend; others are blasts of invective, and still others are complex. . . . .This selection, chosen by William Cole, himself a poet and a discriminating editor of poetry anthologies, and handsomely designed and illustrated by Ellen Raskin, is a splendid introduction to Lawrence the poet.
