A more individual talent than Stevie Smith's you don't get.
—Clive James, The New Yorker

Some Are More Human Than Others

Poetry by Stevie Smith

The British poet Stevie Smith, as her many readers well know, sprinkled her drawings throughout her poetry collections. In this sketchbook, Some Are More Human Than Others, she did the opposite––she spiced her drawings with words. Together they resound with what Robert Lowell described as Smith’s “unique and cheerfully gruesome voice” and open up a little world of peculiar experience: something somber and something gay, innocent and cruel––truths of our world trapped off guard.
