Robert E. Howard: Selected Poems

ByFrank Coffman

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
ROBERT E. HOWARD: SELECTED POEMS is a large and representative collection of the poetry of Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936). Well over 400 examples of Howard's 700+ extant poems and fragments are included, along with commentary and an introduction by Frank Coffman, one of the foremost authorities on REH's poetry. Howard was a member of the illustrious triumvirate of WEIRD TALES poets in the age of "The Pulps." Along with Clark Ashton Smith and H. P. Lovecraft he contributed—in that "Unique Magazine" and elsewhere—to the speculative poetry of the early 20th century. Coffman has published seminal essays on Howard with "Texas Talespinner: Robert E. Howard's Ways With Words" in TWO-GUN BOB (2006)—the first stylometric study of Howard's Work—and "Barbarism Ascendant: The Poetic and Epistolary Origins of the Character and His World" in CONAN MEETS THE ACADEMY (MacFarland 2013, ed. Jonas Prida). He has also given presentations on the topics of "Conan as The Bright Barbarian" and the subjective stylometric analysis of the Conan "canon" with "Robert E. Howard's DNA [Distinctive Narrative Attributes]"
