Tom Disch’s first collection of poems for ten years presents a dazzling variety show of inventive wit. Gavin Ewart called his last title from Anvil ‘an outstanding book, and very enjoyable’. Disch’s+Q174 serious gift for humour permeates poems by turn lyric and narrative, satirical, rebellious, ribald, uncompromising and honest. Too idiosyncratic and various a poet to belong to any poetic grouping, he is simply, in the late Donald Davie’s phrase, ‘so consistently entertaining and intelligent’.
