I found different versions of the Gwendolyn Brooks´ "The Ballad of Rudolph Reed". Could someone provide me with a reliable version?

  • Hi and welcome to Literature Stack Exchange. Could you please add some references (in print or online) to the different versions you encountered? In what way did these versions differ from each other? – Tsundoku Oct 14 '20 at 15:25
  • Sometimes poets publish more than one version of a poem. However, often poems get corrupted at some point, because anthologies don't always go back to the original publication but sometimes reprint the versions in other anthologies. – Peter Shor Oct 15 '20 at 18:06
