Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the half-title to the poet John Masefield: "To John Masefield; from Gordon Bottomley. Silverdale: 22nd July 1944", and with Masefield's book label to the front pastedown. In the late 1910s John Masefield invited Bottomley to read his poetry at his Oxford Recitations in his house in Boars Hill, Oxfordshire. Bottomley recorded that the experience revealed to him "that when poetry was perfectly spoken the drama and much of the action would be in the voice" (Poems and Plays, 18).
