For many, the versions from Asian and Oriental poetry made by E. Powys Mathers during and shortly after the First World War rank with those of Arthur Waley or Ezra Pound. This volume, pairing his first two books, Coloured Stars and Black Marigolds, assembles the best of his remarkable poetry, which even now reads with undated freshness. Tony Harrison, a long-time Mathers admirer, describes the puzzles of Mathers' life and the fascination and originality of his poetry in his entertaining preface. E. Powys Mathers (1892-1939) is most often remembered, other than as the author of Black Marigolds, for his version of the Thousand Nights and One Night and as his alter ego, Torquemada of the Observer - a name to conjure with in the history of the cryptic crossword.

About the Author:

E. Powys Mathers (1892-1939) is the not-quite-forgotten man of modern English poetry. Despite appearing in Yeats' Oxford Book of Modern Verse he is best known for his translation of the Thousand Nights and One Night, and as his alter ego, Torquemada of the Observer - a name to conjure with in the history of the cryptic crossword puzzle. Tony Harrison is one of Britain's best-known contemporary poets.
