I Grow Old – and Somewhat Religious
Hesitating in the cramped kitchen,
What am I looking for? I was putting sticks
What am I looking for? The revolution?
Verse &c. collects a substantial body of Oliver Bernard’s poetry written since the early 1980s and the publication of Poems (1983). His versions of French poets – Rimbaud, Apollinaire – are widely known and praised, but his original work has recently appeared only in small editions. Verse &c. offers lyricism, narratives, political protest, poems about people, poems of place, an anonymous Middle English poem ‘Quia Amore Langueo’ and much else. Bernard’s variety, wit and clarity of imagination will surprise and delight.
