and published up to 1976. Some of Gunn’s poems were published in journals no longer in print and have never been collected into a volume. The Hagstrom book also contains Gunn’s juvenilia and the autobiographical essay “My Life Up to Now.” Anyone serious about Gunn’s complete oeuvre must use this book to understand the broad sweep of Gunn’s career.
