"The law is wrong; I am right"
I wonder why they left out the three poems. They're hardly controversial.
Those are excellent poems too (favorites). Grr.For the UK edition, they discarded 3 poems and they didn't even tell me about it. The poems that were removed are "love poem to Marina", "cornered" and "do you want to enter the arena?" (aka "So you wanna be a writer?"). Un-fucking-believable.

That is what I thought. Maybe these poems are exclusive to Cannongate in the UK so they were not able to reprint them there? This is where a GPP-like group could letterpress print these three poems and slip them in the books on the DL as the kids used to say...Apparently, they didn't have time to secure permission for those 3 poems before book publication. I'm doing my best to have those 3 poems restored when/if there are future printings.
You Americans (and maybe all you young people in Europe) are so far ahead of me:[...] it is a trivial thing to carry all of his books
