Michael Hamburger’s new collection gathers his shorter poems written since his Collected Poems 1941–1994 of 1995. His strong and sinuous poems are alert to the intersections of past and present, of continuity and change. His searching form of nature poetry is informed, as Iain Galbraith put it in PN Review, by ‘a language whose philosophical and metaphysical scope is unique in contemporary British poetry’.
Praise for Michael Hamburger 'O'Driscoll manages to get the reader as close to Hamburger as possible in one book. It feels very much like spending a week at your grandfather's house - getting to listen to all his stories, roaming through cupboards, reading the works hidden inside.'
Dominik Szczepaniak, DURA
