"The sections of Lowry's text are chronologically arranged to reflect his artistic development, and are preceded by short essays describing the specific issues raised by his poems. Theopening section, Lowry's poetic juvenilia, reflects his fascination with t he sea, as does the ensuing section, 'The Lighthouse Invites the Storm', his first collection of poetry, with its sequence of related semi-autobiographical poems depicting the adventures of the characters Peter Gaunt and Vigil Forget. This is followed by a small group of uncollected poems which Lowry composed in Mexico in the 1930s. The next two sections, 'Dollarton, 1940-54: Selected Poems, 1947' and 'Dollarton 1940-54: Uncollected Poems', record the experience of Lowry's sojourn in British Columbia and its deep effecton him." - from the dj.
