Walter de la Mare, Short Stories 1927-1956 : v. 2 Hardback
Edited by Giles de la Mare
The publication of "Short Stories1927-1956" celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Walter de la Mare's death.
It is also the culmination of a major literary enterprise.
For many people Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) is as great a writer of fiction as of poetry.
But the majority of his short stories, of which there are a hundred, have long been unavailable. "Short Stories" brings them all together in three volumes in the first comprehensive collection to be published.
De la Mare's earliest published works were stories, and he continued writing and rewriting stories throughout the rest of his life.
There was always a creative counterpoint between the themes and imagery of his prose and his poetry - such as the dream, childhood, the house, night, love lost and regained, solitude and the traveller.
A full understanding of either is impossible without knowledge of both.
