'This collected edition includes all the poems from David Campbell's individual volumes from 1949 to 1979, with the exception of the translations, Moscow Trefoil (1975) and Seven Russian Poets (1979). I have rearranged them in strict chronological order of first publication, so far as this can be established.'
