This is the first time that all the published work of Basil Bunting (1900-85) has been brought together in one volume. "The Pious Cat", a poem for children, a little juvenilia and a few limericks are included, with Bunting or Caddell's light annotation as appropriate. Bunting's poems were praised by Ezra Pound in 1938, and first admired by American poets, but he has since acquired an English readership. His translations have been greatly admired, and his long poem "Briggflatts" remains the classic introduction to this fine poet.
