"With his unique way of seeing, Didsbury is still one of the wisest, if also one of the most eccentric and unpredictable, of English poetic holy men."

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading your own mind 23 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its like he has trawled through your own mind and put into words, things you knew without being able to express. The poems reveal something new in their depth even after many readings. A few are a bit inaccessible if you haven't had a classical education, but the subtle and off-beat humour of others more than makes up for this. Its my favourite book.
