Selected Poems of Francis Thompson by Francis Thompson (1859 - 1907)
Francis Thompson, an English poet and author, is best known for his poem "Hound of Heaven," included in this selection of his poems. After submitting some poems to the magazine "Merrie England," the editors, Wilfrid and Alice Meynell, became his benefactors and published his first volume, "Poems." Wilfrid Meynell selected these poems form Thompson's works and provides an enlightening biographical sketch. At the end of this volume is a selection of tributes to Thompson ranging from newspaper reviews to an appreciation from G.K Chesterton. ( Larry Wilson)

Having completed several volumes of essays by Alice Meynell, we now turn to a selection of poems by Francis Thompson, supported by her and her husband in getting his poems published

I will be reading the biographical sketch at the beginning and the appreciations at the end with the full LV disclaimer, and several poems, including Hound of Heaven. and The Kingdom of God.

For now I will serve as DPL unless someone is anxious to do this one.

* Publication date of 1908 appears on the scanned book on archive.org

Thanks!

The Translated by appears to be a bug in the generator I've had that happen several times before.

I'll have the MW populated shortly.

I'm going to do the primary PL on this project, but I will need someone to PL my parts, so I'd be grateful for your help with that. I may need a back-up from time to time as well.

Thanks for the offer.

I have finished Poem 3, "Daisy" of Selected Poems of Francis Thompson. When I went to upload it I noticed that there was a list of "addresses" to send the mp3 doc to. Which one of these addresses should I send Poem 3 to?
