This is the first collected edition of the verse for some eighty years. The editors use much recently discovered manuscript material, and there is extensive commentary.

'The Oxford University Press Complete Poetical Works is very welcome ... the standard of editing and production is very high ... The careful industry of Norma Dalrymple-Champneys and Arthur Pollard has given us a reliable and informative text of a great poet who is still damned with faint praise. Gavin Edwards, Saint David's University College, Lampeter. Essays in Criticism 'The editors have done a great service in setting Crabbe's work before us one again. No previous edition has assembled so much of the corpus, and none has executed its work with greater care or more useful notes and other editorial apparatus and commentary.' Jerome McGann, London Review of Books 'It would be premature to hope that this new edition of Crabbe's poetical works will regain for them the esteem and popularity they deserve. But at least they have at last been accorded the appropriate respect of meticulous editing. There was not previous edition with full scholarly apparatus, or even of reliable accuracy. This is a fine edition, the well-shaped fruit of many years' dedicated scholarship.' Peter New, University of Exeter. Review of English Studies 'This is an excellent edition, exemplifying the highest standards of research, editing, and learning ... it does full justice, in respect of presentation and commentary, to Crabbe's originality, realism, and powers of pathos, satire, description, and narrative.' Donald Sultana, University of Edinburgh, Notes and Queries 'Crabbe's own words, now more fully and accurately available than ever before in this excellent new edition, deserve more attention than, through the injustices of fashion, they have received' Peter New, University of Exeter, British Journal for Eighteenth Century Studies
