View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Covering Charles Tomlinson's work over a period of thirty years, this volume reveals how his poetry moves continually between two poles--England and America, country and town, home and abroad, and nature and history. Tomlinson infuses his poetry with a special reverence for the natural world and a distaste for the human forces that inflict violence upon it. Revised and expanded, this new paperback edition now includes the poems that appeared in the collection, Notes from New York.
