In 1970 Laura (Riding) Jackson published with Faber her "Selected Poems: in five sets", presenting a clutch of poems readers for the first time in the three decades since she renounced poetry, an act which challenges her readers still. In 1980 a new edition, with an important introduction, of the 1938 "The Poems of Laura Riding" was published by Carcanet. The poet said: "My work poetic and other, early and later - has no allegiances, private, social, cultural. The point of it is, not "modernism" but "What Further?". In 1993 "First Awakenings: The Early Poems" added substantially to the "oeuvre". Now poet, critic and novelist Robert Nye, long time advocate of the poems, makes this substantial new introductory selection.
