Of Gentle Seasons Passing One by One - Poems of a Miscellaneous Nature

Author: Amy Levy E-book

Amy Judith Levy (1861–1889) was a British poet, novelist, and essayist. She was notably the first Jewish woman to study at Cambridge university, and she became well-known for her feminist positions as well as her romantic relationships with both male and female political and literature figures. This book contains a collection of some of Levy's best and most famous poems. Levy suffered with major depression, growing worse as she got closer to her 30s and becoming aware of her growing deafness. Although showing such talents at a young age, Levy took her own life 2 months before her 28th birthday. This collection looks into the mind of this struggling poet and perhaps her final poetic thoughts and struggles with depression. Contents includes: “A Wall Flower”, “The First Extra”, “At a Dinner Party”, “Philosophy”, “A Game of Lawn Tennis”, “To E”, “A London Plane-Tree”, “London in July.”, “A March Day in London”, “Ballade of an Omnibus”, “Ballade of a Special Edition”, “Straw in the Street”, “Between the Showers”, “Out of Town”, “The Piano-Organ”, “London Poets”, and “The Village Garden”. A fantastic collection of classic poetry that deserves a place in every bookshelf. Other works by this author include: “Xantippe and Other Verse” (1881), “The Romance of a Shop” (1888), and “Miss Meredith” (1889). As part of our poetry imprint "Ragged Hand" Read & Co. is proudly publishing this brand new collection of classic poetry complete with an introductory biography of the author by Richard Garnett.
