  • Includes a general introduction situating Dowden within Irish letters at the turn of the century, with particular attention to his role as mentor to W. B. Yeats.
  • Generous notes gloss allusions and historical references while new scholarly sources allow for the most accurate chronology of the poems to date.
  • Includes five previously uncollected poems.
  • Appendices include a detailed account of the 1914 catalogue from the sale of select volumes from Dowden's library and a list of works sold in previous and subsequent auctions.
