About this title


These poems, written over a period of forty years, confirm Anthony Thwaite as one of the most assured, interesting and enjoyable poets of his generation, whose work recognises conflicting forces. There is the need for roots and the desire to get away: there is the urge to speak plainly, and the impulse to speak through other voices. These are the poems of a traveller and explorer - of the contemporary world and of the past - who brings back tales which tell us more each time we read them.

About the Author:

Anthony Thwaite was born in 1930. He spent his childhood in Yorkshire, the USA (1940-44) and Somerset. After national service in Libya he read English at Oxford. He then married and went to Japan for two years, where he taught English Literature at Tokyo University. Since then he has been a BBC radio producer, literary editor of the Listener and the New Statesman, co-editor of Encounter, and in 1986 was chairman of the Booker Prize judges. He is a literary executor of Philip Larkin and the editor of his Collected Poems. He is a regular reviewer for The Guardian and other journals. In 1990 he was made an OBE for services to poetry.
