The definitive anthology spanning from 1948-2014, complete with new poems, from multi-award winning Dannie Abse, one of Britain's most well-respected poets.

This is the collection of a lifetime's work from one of Britiain's best-loved poets. Dannie Abse has published an array of work including fiction, autobiography and plays but he is best known, and critically acclaimed, as a poet.

Dannie Abse collects together here the definitive jewels of his cannon. This volume comprises both a distinguished collection of his past work and a generous selection of new poems.

About the Author:

Dannie Abse was for many years a chest specialist in a London teaching hospital. A poet, reviewer and playwright, he has written and edited more than fifteen books of poetry, as well as books about medicine and also fiction. He is the author of Ash on a Young Man's Sleeve and several autobiographical volumes, including Goodbye, Twentieth Century, was published in 2001 to critical acclaim. He died, at the age of 91, in September 2014.

Review:

"Glorious ... Abse's warmth and lightness of touch is evident whether applied to young love, the horrors of war or the quiet absorption of grief." -- Maria Crawford (Poetry Books of the Year) Financial Times "He brought a blend of precision and compassion to a body of work that was attentive, tender and always deeply felt." -- Poetry Books of the Year Guardian "To the lover of poetry, the death of any fine poet is cause for grief - because a singing voice is silenced forever. Welshman Abse, doctor and poet, died in September, so this last collection is a volume to treasure." Daily Mail "Such a full span of acutely observed and rendered life experience is rarely found in a body of poetic work but it is the nature of the intelligence and voice brought to bear upon these experiences that makes Abse's poems such powerfully quiet reminders of what it is that matters." London Library Magazine "Such a full span of acutely observed and rendered life experience is rarely found in a body of poetic work but it is the nature of the intelligence and voice brought to bear upon these experiences that makes Abse's poems such powerfully quiet reminders of what it is that matters." London Library Magazine
