5.0 out of 5 stars Out of date, out of print.... 2 Sep 2007
Controlled and powerful in his use of the English language, JHS was one of Britain's most under-rated poets. This collection is good, very good, but it's out of date (there's 20 years worth of poems missing from here) and out of print.
Bloody disgrace.
Come on Carcanet, let's be having a proper, up to date JHS collected poems...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of this century's great volumes of verse 2 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Both TS Eliot and the critic Herbert Read regarded the young John Heath-Stubbs as perhaps the most remarkable young classical poet of their time. This is a matter of critical record. Others in the 1940s and 1950s said that he had the best ear for a line and for the music of a sustained passage since Milton. These Collected Poems, the fruit of a lifetime which is still yielding admirable work, amply justify that praise.
