Product description

As well as "Briggflatts" (long out of print in the US, and now only available in this edition), this newComplete Poems includes Bunting's other great sonatas, most notably Villon (1925) and The Spoils (1951), along with his two books of Odes, his vividly realized "Overdrafts" (as he called his free translations of Horace, Rudaki, and others), and his brilliantly condensed Japanese adaptation, Chomei at Toyama (1932). It also includes his posthumous Uncollected Poems. This centenary edition has an introduction by Richard Caddel, Director of the Basil Bunting Poetry Center at Durham University.

Review quote

"There is verse which is directly melodic, which seems to sing rather than speak. Basil Bunting is a master of this...."
