The English Poet Laureate from 1913 to 1930, Robert Bridges produced verse noted for its restraint, purity, precision and delicacy, yet strength of expression. It represents a distinct theory of prosody and his devout faith underpinned much of his work. His experimentation with eighteenth-century classical forms culminated in ‘The Testament of Beauty’, a long philosophical poem, generally regarded as his masterpiece. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Bridges’ complete poetical works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
