NOTES ON SELECTION OF WORKS
The selection of Barcroft's work on this web site includes those poems I think are most likely to be of general interest today.

A more extensive collection of his poems (though not fully comprehensive) can be found in the collection edited by A G Stephens and published by Angus and Robertson in 1897, titled Where the Dead Men Lie. It was republished in 1913 with a revised Memoir. The 1897 edition was then republished in 1981 by Currey O'Neil under the title of Jack's Last Muster.

The poems on this site are in the form initially published in The Bulletin (or elsewhere). A G Stephens made significant punctuation changes and some other minor editing when publishing his collection. He said he "strengthened a line or changed a word where the advantage seemed obvious or the necessity great." Stephens loved exclamation marks and peppered Barcroft's text with them. Wherever possible I have reverted to Barcroft's initially published text, notwithstanding any perceived faults.
