Ten Poems

Walter de la Mare

Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was a popular and successful poet, the master of dusk and night. His atmospheric descriptions halt the reader’s mind in its tracks. This pamphlet includes his best-known poems, such as ‘The Listeners’ and ‘Silver’ and introduces us to some others, less well known.

Walter de la Mare questioned everything, including or, rather, above all the things that everyone round him had become quite sure about. But he rarely or never stayed for an answer. He just went on writing with an unfettered mind unfettered poetry.”

Owen Barfield, poet and philosopher (1898-1997)
