The content includes non-Howard material in Swedish, except for Patrice Louinet’s introduction and the “Notes” section, which offers insights into the stories.

The Collected Poetry of Robert E. Howard Volume One

Robert E. Howard wrote poetry. He wrote it first in life, last in life, and throughout life. Howard completed around 300 stories for commercial sale and worked on 300 more. But he wrote over 700 poems, virtually none of them meant for commercial markets. His first publication outside of school was his poem “The Sea”, published in a local paper. His famous “All fled, all done…” couplet, borrowed from Viola Garvin, was allegedly the last words he typed. And in between, poetry gushed from him.

This first volume of a three-volume set collects the rest of all of Howard’s known poetry.
