Synopsis

This is a new and essential selection from the range and bulk of Robert Graves' poetry, edited by Ulster poet Michael Longley. This edition will restore Graves to view as a major twentieth century poet, and demonstrate his manifold achievement as war poet, as love poet, and as - in the round - a secular visionary whose poems are inimitable, eccentric marvels - some of which are extraordinary, many are masterly, all are like nothing else ever written (Randall Jarrell).

Author's Biography

Robert Graves (1895-1985) was a poet, novelist and critic. His first volume of poems, Over the Brazier (1916), reflected his experiences in the trenches, and was followed by many works of poetry, non-fiction and fiction. He is best known for his novel, I, Claudius (1934), which won the Hawthornden and James Tait Black memorial prizes and for his influential The White Goddess (1948).
