The first three volumes of this four-volume work will present chronologically all of Jeffers' published work from 1920 to 1963. Jeffers' publishers sometimes adjusted his punctuation, presumably to bring the poems' punctuation into accord with grammatical convention. The texts for this edition revert to Jeffers' own preferences, insofar as the best methods of modern textual editing can reveal them.
