Born in a Kent village, Walter de la Mare was born on April 25, 1873. He was an English poet, short story writer and novelist. He is probably best remembered for his works for children and for his poem "The Listeners".

De la Mare's first book, Songs of Childhood, was published under the name Walter Ramal. He worked in the statistics department of the London office of Standard Oil for eighteen years to support his family, but nevertheless found time to write. De la Mare suffered from a coronary thrombosis in 1947 and died of another in 1956. His ashes are buried in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral, where he had once been a choirboy.

THE DEEP ONES: "Mr. Kempe" by Walter de la Mare i The Weird Tradition (juli 2023)
THE DEEP ONES: "All Hallows" by Walter de la Mare i The Weird Tradition (juni 2023)

Recensioner

Tedious, packed with hackneyed poetic figures. Weirdly similar to “Childe Roland,” but making no allusion to that similarity (as far as I can tell). I felt far more for the horse than the Traveller.

"No breath of wind, / No gleam of sun – / Still the white snow / Whirls softly down / Twig and bough / And blade and thorn / All in an icy / Quiet, forlorn." So begins Walter de la Mare's evocative wintry poem, which captures the enchanted beauty of snowy vistas—the light and shadow, crystal flakes and powdery piles—and which forms the text of this lovely picture book. The accompanying illustrations from Moldovan artist Carolina Rabei depict a small snow-bound town, and one family's preparation for and celebration of Christmas—Santa Claus appears, in four magical pages—expanding the "story" in the poem to include seasonal observances...

The poem Snow was originally included in Walter de la Mare's 1913 poetry collection, Peacock Pie, and is one of four such selections—the other three being Silver, Summer Evening and The Ride-by-Nights—recently made into picture books featuring Rabei's artwork. The four titles together make up Faber & Faber's Four Seasons of Walter de la Mare series. Snow is the second of these books I have read, after The Ride-by-Nights, and was apparently nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal (now ignominiously renamed the Carnegie Medal for Illustration). I can certainly see why it received that distinction, as the artwork is quite beautiful. I have a weakness for wintry scenes, and Rabei more than delivers! That being said, although I loved both artwork and poetry here, I wasn't sure what to make of the inclusion of the Christmas element in the former, as I think the poem is more about the beauty of winter itself, and the mystery and majesty of snow, rather than about the holiday. I don't think this was the "wrong" choice, as I did love the Christmasy scenes, and for many people winter is tied to the holiday, but I did find myself wondering what else could have been depicted, if the choice has been made to create a "simple" winter book. Leaving this quibble aside, this is nevertheless one that I would recommend to picture book readers and listeners, who enjoy poetic picture books and/or stories about winter wonders.
