5.0 out of 5 stars A Book Long Overdue 4 Dec 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Richard Aldington (1892-1962) is today one of the lesser-read poets of WW1. His often oblique allusions, sensuous frankness and predominant use of free verse make a body of poetry very different from the standard pieces encountered in classrooms and mainstream anthologies.
Excepting the omission of a few tangential works, Michael Copp's edition brings together all the poems in which Aldington commented on the war. Welcome finds include such moving love poems as "Reverie" (addressed to Aldington's wife, the poet H.D.), sharp vignettes like "Bombardment", and poems such as "A Village" in which small beauties provide the salve for wartime misery. Aldington's preoccupations throughout his literary career - love, suffering, stoicism, and a pagan reverence for the natural world - are clearly shown. Mr Copp's full introduction furthermore provides a useful synthesis of recent scholarship on Aldington, his war writings and his relationship to Imagism.
The book as a whole stands as a quality tribute and important re-introduction to a strangely neglected writer. Highly recommended.
