‘The Choosers’: posthumous collections of Stevie Smith's poetry

May, William (2005) ‘The Choosers’: posthumous collections of Stevie Smith's poetry The Library, 6, (3), pp. 321-338. (doi:10.1093/library/6.3.321).

Record type: Article


The poetry of the British writer Stevie Smith has been re-edited and re-issued several times since her death in 1971, from James MacGibbon's edition of her 'Collected Poems' (1975) to a recent edition designed for young children entitled 'Our Bog is Dood' (1995). This article examines the kinds of assumptions posthumous editors have made about Smith's writing, and explores how her oeuvre has been recreated through this process.
