FROM THE PUBLISHER - Robert Graves is one of the giants of modern literature, considered by many the living master of romantic love poetry in English. This latest collection of his work spans more than fifty years of his life and thought. His classic regard for the precision of language makes each of his poems a model of clarity, style, and emotion. A biographical introduction by James McKinley and sixteen pages of photographs provide fascinating insights into the poet’s life and its relationship to his writing. A perfect introduction for the newcomer to the work of this lyric master, this comprehensive collection will be recognized by those who already love his poetry as the capstone to a lifework of unparalleled creativity and beauty. Robert Graves was born and educated in England. He first became known as a poet after World War I, in which he fought and was severely wounded. He achieved international fame with his memoir GOOD-BYE TO ALL THAT, after which he moved to Majorca with his second wife, the writer Laura Riding. During World War II he lived and worked in America. Since then, he has returned with his present wife, Beryl, to Majorca where he continues to write and swim in the Mediterranean every day. He has written over 130 books, including poetry, criticism, translations, and novels, among them the classic historical novel, I, CLAUDIUS. He celebrated his eightieth birthday in 1975.
