Collection of poetry by James Kenneth Stephen, cousin of Virginia Woolf. Stephen's poetry was well received by other major writer's of his era.
Will there never come a season
Which shall rid us from the curse
Of a prose which knows no reason
And an unmelodious verse:
When the world shall cease to wonder
At the genius of an Ass,
And a boy's eccentric blunder
Shall not bring success to pass:
When mankind shall be delivered
From the clash of magazines,
And the inkstand shall be shivered
Into countless smithereens:
When there stands a muzzled stripling,
Mute, beside a muzzled bore:
When the Rudyards cease from Kipling
And the Haggards Ride no more.
Beautiful binding. Lovely bookplate. Some pencil markings and occasional smudge.
