Selected Poems of James Elroy Flecker is a collection of poems with an introduction by Jean Cantlie Stewart. She read Byron at a very early age, influenced by her elder brother. Consequently, poetry became a lifelong passion for Jean. One of her favourite authors was James Elroy Flecker, whose life was sadly cut short in 1915 when he died as a result of tuberculosis. His father had been ordained in the Church of England but Flecker explored the tenets of Islam which informed his later work. As a result of Jean's passion for the poetry of James Elroy Flecker, she compiled this delightful anthology with a detailed introduction. As Jean writes in her introduction, his poetry is "alive with colour, light, sound and music...to Flecker, poetry was a combination of acute perception and intellectual and emotional activity and, in order to develop these creative gifts, the poet needed an enthusiasm for the world in every detail - a world that was always 'passionately interesting' and filled with human kindness."
