Linton- Life in the Collections

Alfred H. Miles ed.:

89) The Poets and the Poetry of the 19th Century. Vol. IV.

London 1892 /1905

In the collection a late edition of 1905

The complete series of 19th-century British poetry, edited by the prolific compiler Alfred Henry Miles, consists of ten volumes that were arranged in chronological order. The choice of poems by Linton was selected from the late collection of Poems and Translations (1889). It favours his lyrical side, mainly poems of the Love-Lore cycle and two examples of translations after Beránger. The introductory essay by the noted literary critic and editor Arthur Henry Bullen provides a valuable short biography of Linton. The volume also includes works by the coeval William Bell Scott and by John Ruskin.
