The Collected Later Poems of R.S. Thomas -- Well, you've got to have it. How could you live without more of his crystal perceptions, grumpy mutterings and luminous moments that stop the heart? I don't regret buying it but I wish Bloodaxe could have been more generous with the design. Compared to the beautiful earlier Collected Poems published by Dent, this is 12% smaller and feels rather mean. The typeface is a couple of points less and requires a bit of a squint. For some strange reason the text is placed close to the left-hand edge and looks unbalanced on the page. The Arts Council are credited with financial assistance; perhaps they didn't give quite enough. I only carp to protect the unwary from disappointing surprises. Don't let me put you off. The poems rise above such quibbles.

If you liked RS Thomas' other collected works then you will love this, his work has developed and matured and his poetry is wonderfully, lyrically descriptive. He is brutally honest about himself and the world that he lives in and observes.

I chose this rating because all the purchases are exactly to my requirements. I did have to send Tchaikovsky syms. 4,5,6.back as they were the wrong set but had no trouble in exchanging for the set I wanted. Lionel Dossett.
