'Reid is a poet who lives on in the mind, becomes part of one's own inner vocabulary. In every poetic generation there are not more than one or two like that'. Poetry Review
From the Back Cover
For and After is Christopher Reid's fourth collection of poems to be published by Faber and Faber, and his first since Expanded Universes in 1996. It consists, more or less half and half, of poems bearing dedications to friends, colleagues and loved ones, and translations or versions of works in foreign languages, including a passage from The Odyssey and a miscellany of pieces by Horace, Leopardi, Baudelaire, Rilke and others. By turns intimate and affectionate, satirical and mischievous, For and After is a dazzling insight into one of the most imaginative minds in the business.See all Product Description

* including Vaughan, Prior, Pope, Byron, Charles Tennyson Turner and all manner of lesser lights, including one Moribundus(!) - but not Stevie Smith
** Ô saisons ô châteaux, quelle âme est sans défauts. Oh, that's Rimbaud - my education is deficient - but he was channelling his sometime mentor. Whatever, French schoolchildren are put off this sort of thing for life (perhaps cunning aversion therapy is the plan?) along with La Fontaine - who wrote for ADULTS (and is another one anglophony persistently makes over, in this case to continued remarkable effect; this is a poet we are comfortable with!)
