This includes Mirrlees' important-but-neglected Modernist poem "Paris", as well as later (not-so-Modernist, frequently Catholic) poems, essays, a brief biography, and some commentary. You would not know it was by the same author as Lud-in-the-Mist, except that both books show the same clear control of prose and distancing of viewpoint. "Paris", at least, deserves full entry into the canon and the rest are worth reading and absorbing. ( )
