Pearl Andelson - Fringe & Other Poems Public Domain Poets #2 | 'Fringe & Other Poems' brings together around 50 poems, including verses from Andelson's 1923 collection 'Fringe', and a selection of other verses and variants, written between 1921 and 1926, never before anthologised. New edition designed, edited, and selected by Dick Whyte. The rain arranged Crystal berries for me To wear In my hair. By inadvertence one fell into the infinity of a bluebell. Pearl Andelson was a poet from Chicago, primarily active between 1920 and 1930. She published her first poems in Harriet Monroe's 'Poetry' in 1921, and went on to appear in 'Voices', 'The Forge', and 'The Dial' (among others), all popular outlets for the 'new verse' in English (i.e. often unrhymed, compressed, fragmented). Yvor Winter's said of her work: "Andelson has developed and mastered a compact and beautiful technique that can apparently be made as simple or intricate as she desires" through "precision, flawless juxtaposition, and an exquisite mastery... of rhythm." Like old men and women: simplified to a gesture. Public Domain Press is dedicated to producing contemporary editions of out-of-print poets and poetry collections, particularly with regard to compressed and fragmented 'free verse' from the late-1800s and early-1900s. All poems start as facsimiles - to preserve the original fonts - which are then cleaned up, edited for consistency, and spaciously laid-out, adorned with borders, illustrations, and ornaments from the books and magazines they originally appeared in. These are not "reprints" of previously existing books, but newly crafted collections, lovingly edited from public domain material, for the serious poetry lover.
