Publisher: Virago Press
Published Date: 1981

Stevie Smith (1902-1971) is most famous as a poet and for her three extraordinary novels. But, throughout her life, stories, essays, reviews, a radio play, poems and drawings poured from her witty and magnificent pen and this volume is this first to collect them. She had a unique eye for what is wonderful in the ordinary, and her perceptions about friendship, love and the complexities of life have rarely been equalled. Dominating these writings is her unforgettable humour and wit, quintessentially English yet absolutely universal. ME AGAIN illuminates and confirms the splendid and varied qualities which constitute the genius of Stevie Smith.

Stevie Smith Books, Stevie Smith poetry book Over The Frontier Authors: Stevie Smith
Publisher: Hachette UK
Published Date: 2015-04-02
Categories: Fiction
It is 1936. Pompey Casmilus (the heroine of Smith's debut, Novel on Yellow Paper) lives in London with her beloved Aunt, bothered by the menace of German militarism, bothered too by the humbug which confronts it, bothered most of all by her hopeless love affair with Freddy. Its ending plunges Pompey into melancholy; six months of rest and recuperation are prescribed and Pompey goes to Schloss Tilssen on the northern German border, only to fall in with a strange band of conspirators: the plum-coloured Mrs Pouncer, the absent-minded Colonel Peck and the dashing Major Tom Satterthwaite, whom Pompey comes to love. How Pompey gets into uniform and becomes a spy is only one of the astounding events in this extraordinary novel which, on a serious level, is also about a powerful investigation of power and cruelty in a world preparing for war.

Stevie Smith Books, Stevie Smith poetry book A Very Pleasant Evening with Stevie Smith Authors: Stevie Smith
Publisher: New Directions Publishing
Published Date: 1995
Categories: Fiction
A great poet and novelist (Novel on Yellow Paper), Stevie Smith also wrote delightful short prose. And here, in A Very Pleasant Evening with Stevie Smith, is the very best of it: eight stories and four essays mixing throw-away charm and deadly sophistication. Her stories delight and surprise; her essays defend favorite subjects, such as cats and the suburbs. "Life in the suburbs is richer at the lower levels. At these levels people are not self-conscious at all, they are at liberty to be as eccentric as they please, they do not know they are eccentric".

Stevie Smith Books, Stevie Smith poetry book The Holiday Authors: Stevie Smith
Publisher: Hachette UK
Published Date: 2015-04-02
Categories: Fiction
Celia works at the Ministry in the post-war England of 1949 and lives in a London suburb. Witty, fragile, quixotic, Celia is preoccupied with love - for her friends, her colleagues, her relations, and especially for her adored cousin Casmilus, with whom she goes on holiday to visit Uncle Heber, the vicar. Here they talk endlessly, argue, eat, tell stories, love and hate - moments of wild humour alternating with waves of melancholy as Celia ponders obsessively on the inevitable pain of love. In everything she wrote, Stevie Smith captured the paradox of pain in all human affections - nowhere more so than in this wry, strongly autobiographical tale.

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
Obiit Mdcccxxxiii (Entire)
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Strong Son of God, immortal Love,
Whom we, that have not seen thy face,
By faith, and faith alone, embrace,
Believing where we cannot prove;
Thine are these orbs of light and shade;
Thou madest Life in man and brute;
Thou madest Death; and lo, thy foot
Is on the skull which thou hast made.
