Tom Raworth's Collected Poems (2003) was acclaimed by the Times Literary Supplement as a milestone: thirty years' work by a major poet of English modernism gathered for the first time. Raworth moves on, radical, inventive and politically engaged. Windmills on Fire takes a vertiginous ride through the language landscape we inhabit. Poems fragment and distort, veer in unexpected directions, reconfigure. Playful, often funny, Windmills on Fire is fuelled by anger at the use of language as an instrument of political deceit and military aggression.
