Re: Walter de la Mare Strangers and Pilgrims

I've ordered the book anyway. As I wanted the 1984 edition, I thought it best to jump in and get it while a copy was available for under £10. I do intend to pick up 'Out of the Deep' as well, though that's more likely to be available for some time.

Re: Walter de la Mare Strangers and Pilgrims

My copy of 'Behold, This Dreamer' arrived today, and what a very nice volume it is. Over 700 pages of musings on dreams and fantasies, hallucinations and their explanations (including a 100 page introduction by De La Mare).

The book is chock full with poetry and passages of prose, including the likes of Shakespeare, De Quincey, and Sassoon. I have a feeling this is likely to be a book to be dipped in and out of, whenever the mood takes the reader, rather than to be read in one concerted effort.

Re: Walter de la Mare Strangers and Pilgrims

The very first sentence of De La Mare's introduction confirms as much:

'The collections of poems and passages in prose that follows may be opened at random, browsed in, and then laid aside, until (as I hope) it is returned to again.'
