Introduction

The Remains of Robert Bloomfield, compiled after Bloomfield’s death by Joseph Weston and Bloomfield’s daughter, Hannah, brought together a mixture of poetry and prose by Bloomfield, the majority of which was either unpublished or uncollected elsewhere. Those poems first published in magazines and anthologies and collected in the Remains, have been removed hence and placed in their chronological position.
