One-Way Song. With a Foreword by T. S. Eliot.
Second edition, ostensibly an unaltered reprint of the first edition of 1933, but in fact with some changes. Eliot’s foreword is new to this edition. Bridson had reviewed the original edition uncharitably as ‘versified pamphleteering’ in Poetry XLV: 3 (Dec 1934), accusing it of being a satirical diatribe attacking Bergsonism.
Pound & Grover A20c; Morrow & Lafourcade A21a, note; Gallup, Eliot B82.
