Dies Irae

This is the title of a collection of 16 poems that - according to a note written by EM in Poems of Thirty Years, Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1982, p. V (see also: Collected Poems, Manchester: Carcanet Press, 1990, p. 15.) - "was to have been published by Lotus Press in their Acadine Poets series, but when the series foundered through lack of finance, never appeared; it was intended as a complementary volume to The Vision of Cathkin Braes - rather like the tragic and comic masks of drama."

So although Dies Irae and Other Poems and Translations had been written in 1952 they appeared for the very first time in:

Poems of Thirty Years, Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1982, p. 3-24.
