Elizabeth Bishop is increasingly recognized as one of the twentieth centurys most important and original poets. Initially celebrated for the minute detail of her descriptions, what John Ashbery memorably called her "thinginess," Bishops reputation has risen dramatically since her death, in part due to the publication of new work, including letters, stories, and visual art, as well as a controversial volume of uncollected poems, drafts, and fragments. This Companion engages with key debates surrounding the interpretation and reception of Bishops published and unpublished writing in relation to questions of biography, the natural world, and politics. Individual chapters focus on well-known texts such as North & South, Questions of Travel, and Geography III, while offering fresh readings of the significance of Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, and Brazil to Bishops life and work. With a chronology and guide to further reading, this volume explores the full range of Bishops artistic achievements and the extent to which the posthumous publications have contributed to her enduring popularity.
