Description

This revised collection gathers together Charles Causley's poetry spanning a period of more than fifty years and includes his most recent unpublished work as well as some of his poems for children.

'There are poems in this superb volume that will shine for as long as there are humans to read them' Kevin Crossley-Holland, Times Educational Supplement

'Almost everything in his Collected Poems communicates with instant, attention-seizing effect, and few living poets are so readily memorised . . . hardly a page in this handsome volume fails to impress and enchant with technical virtuosity and unnerving imagination' Alan Brownjohn, Sunday Times

About Charles Causley

Charles Causley (1917-2003) was one of England's most distinguished poets. Ted Hughes said, 'Among the English Poetry of the last half-century, Charles Causley's could well turn out to be the best loved and the most needed.' Apart from six years in the wartime Royal Navy he lived almost all his life in his native town of Launceston in Cornwall, where he also once worked as a teacher. He has published many collections of his work both for adults and for children and won a number of literary awards and prizes. In 1986 he was appointed CBE.
