Dragons contains Gavin Bantock’s poems since the publication of Eirenikon (1972), together with a selection of his previously uncollected earlier poems. His new work – a series of gothic portraits from life, the fantasy-like sequence Dragon World and, most recently, two narrative poems on Zen themes – is richly varied and confirms Bantock as one of the most striking voices in contemporary poetry.
Awards won by Gavin Bantock Short-listed, 1988 Arvon Foundation International Poetry Competition Winner, 1969 Eric Gregory Award Winner, 1966 Poetry Society's Award Winner, 1964 Richard Hillary Award
