5.0 out of 5 stars Autumn and more, 19 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collected Poems (Hardcover)
From the mid 1930s to the late 50s Louis MacNiece supplemented his BBC career as a broadcaster and producer with the publication of several fine volumes of poetry that received a mixed reaction from critics at the time.
This very handsome volume (with MacNiece on the cover looking at his coolest Soho/Boho)contains them all, including his long narrative verse masterpiece "Autumn Journal", written as autbiography in response to the London of the Munich crisis and his own tortured love-life. This in itself would justify the volume, but part of the joy is discovering the less famous poems, "Time for a Smoke" or "October in Bloomsbury" for example, poems that capture a moment of reflection or a passing thought and remain timeless.

Having been brought up in Carrickfergus in the 50s and 60s I understand his perspective in earlier poems. Autobiographical reflections.
