Excerpt

The eightieth birthday of Mr. More, which occurred on March 29, 1939, has suggested the present commemoration of his life and work.

I have given first a short biography. Although for a number of years Mr. More has been prominent in the literary and the business world, the facts of his life have been little known and difficult to obtain. This has been true especially of the period before he settled in the East-- the period which includes both his formative years and the time of his chief poetical work. In presenting the material I have laid emphasis on Mr. More's literary career.

The main part of the book consists of poems by Mr. More, chosen to suggest the merit and range of his work. Two of the shorter lyrics now are published for the first time. Where it seemed possible to offer interesting information about a particular poem or the class to which it belongs, I have added an introduction.

For those concerned with the growth of Mr. More's art, further information is included in the Appendix.
