Scholarly Commentary


These loose proof pages contain two corrected copies of the sonnet “ Love-Sweetness”, one unpaginated, the other paginated for inclusion in DGR's 1870 Poems as the book went into its final printing for publication in late March 1870. This sonnet was one of the last added to the book. A copy of the preceding sonnet, “ Love's Baubles”, is also part of these revise proofs.
