An essential selection from the range and bulk of Robert Graves's poetry, edited by Ulster poet Michael Longley. This edition restores Graves to view as a major twentieth century poet, and demonstrates his manifold achievement as war poet, as love poet, and as - in the round - a secular visionary whose poems are 'inimitable, eccentric marvels - some of which are extraordinary, many are masterly, all are like nothing else ever written' (Randall Jarrell). This edition of Robert Graves's poems is scrupulously selected from across the full range of his lifetime's verse.
It opens with an illuminating introduction in which Longley makes a persuasive case for the importance of this remarkable poet.
