§ First trade edition. "Solstice and Other Poems represents a crucial turn in the career—or ministry—of Robinson Jeffers. The title narrative Solstice is the one of Jeffers’ shorter narrative poems. In spite of its brevity, Robinson Jeffers chose not to include Solstice in his Selected Poetry (1938)... The volume did include the previously published lyrics Return and also introduced some noteworthy lyrics, including Love the Wild Swan, Distant Rainfall, Gray Weather, and Ave Caesar."
