Lola Ridge Journal Publication 1892-1920

Michele Leggott
 

 

The earliest known publication from Ridge’s 1905 collection ‘Verses’ dates from 1892 in New Zealand; the last poem published from the collection appeared in 1920 in New York, after the poet had adopted free verse and was making her American reputation with The Ghetto and Sun-Up. I am indebted to Roger Collins, who located Ridge’s Canterbury Times poems, and to Elaine Sproat for references to some of Ridge’s post-1908 journal publication, and for copies of the extant pages of the revised ‘Verses’ typescript.
