Douglas Dunn 'He writes with a clarity unequalled among his contemporaries.' Peter Porter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This collected poems is excellent - it is the first time I have tried Hugo Williams and he has succeeeded in becoming one of my favourite contemporary poets. THe language is relatively simple, yet the message and nostalgia layered withing the lines is fantastic. The truth behind Williams' poems is clear, not as critical as Larkin, but insightful nevertheless. If you are interested in poetry and enjoy it, then I highly recommend this book, it really is superb.

This is a wonderful Collected. Hugo Williams poetry is accessible and carefully crafted - amusing, observant and wonderfully poignant. He is extremely good company. The poems are clear as a bell!
