Ronald Stuart Thomas is one of the few commercially successful poets of the late twentieth century. His early work has tended to be more popular than his later, more fragile work, but his honesty and directness shines through all of his poems. His later work reflects his doubts about God, something that was a big issue for him, him being a member of the Anglican Clergy. But his poems reach out to all, with their environmental and personal concerns, as well as his lamenting his departed wife. This volume lacks an introduction, but shear amount of poems within, and the amazing price, make this an excellent buy for all interested in English poems.
