About this product
- DescriptionCharles Tomlinson's New Collected Poems gathers a lifetime's work, from the 1950s to 2006. A poet deeply responsive to English landscape, grounded in the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge, Tomlinson is also a writer of international rewn, with wide-ranging interests in European and American poets, many of whom he has edited and translated. Collected Poems is an enriching journey across continents and literatures, friendships, collaborations and experiments, always with an eye keen for new places and possibilities. Tomlinson's poetry is witty and lumius, marked by precise observation and language, alert to surfaces and depths, to the local and the universal.
