Format: Paperback
The world of modernist studies has long awaited a definitive publication of Hope Mirrlees' life and work. Finally, we have it! As one modernist scholar to another, thank you Sandeep Parmar. My own research on Mirrlees would be severely lacking without the help of this book.

The collection is actually much more than Mirrlees' poems, which may not be clear from the title: it includes all of her published essays, annotations on "Paris: A Poem" by Julia Briggs (formerly published in Gendered Modernisms, I believe) and further annotations by Parmar about the other poems and essays. And it also includes an important though short biography of Mirrlees and Parmar's analysis of "Paris: A Poem." We now have far greater insight into Mirrlees as a writer. It is incredible to see what themes (like the moon, fairies and nymphs) remained in her work throughout her life, pre and post Catholic conversion. Lastly, the inclusion of Jane Harrison's "To Her. A twilight poem" (which I do not believe has ever been published before) was an absolute treat to discover as I came to the end of the book. It may be wishful thinking, but I would have also liked to see a republication of Henig's "Queen of Lud" essay and even Michael Swanwick's biography of Mirrlees (two sources that are very hard to track down).

Overall, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I am so glad that Mirrlees is finally being brought to the (modernist) spotlight. She deserves to be read and taught and I hope that this handy collection will serve that end. Now I shall eagerly await new publications of her out-of-print novels and a full biography!
