Recently retired from his position as Emeritus Professor at Bristol University, the prolific and much translated poet Charles Tomlinson has entitled his latest collection Jubilation , a pun on the Spanish word jubilacion - meaning retirement. It is a book about staying young while getting older and about continuities provided by family life and shared interests. There are poems concerning travels in Japan, Portugal, and Italy and one expressly called Against Travel , a poem that signals the dialectic of the book - between roots and wandering, wandering and roots. This book is intended for usual poetry readers. Interest abroad (Italy, Spain, Germany) for translation.show more
