Elizabeth Bishop is one of the greatest American poets. Her work is essential for anyone interested in poetry from the 20th Century. This edition includes her complete works, translations she did by other poets and her uncollected works. It also includes her original handwritten or typed drafts of some of her later poems. It's fascinating to see her how she worked and the changes she made. This book is essential for every poetry collection.
