Summary Here, brought together in one volume for the first time, are the best poems of Christopher Morley. Best know to the public as a novelist, Morley considered himself first and last a poet, and it is as a poet that he wished to be remembered. From the span of Morley's work, John Bracker has drawn 132 poems that may be said to represent the high points of the poet's art. In addition, the editor has included a number of the "translations from the Chinese," so much admired by Pearl Buck and Leonard Bacon
