Product description

Review

Incident and character are vividly depicted, period is richly evoked and the descriptive passages remind one what a splendid poet the author is. --The Observer

'An entertaining and at times moving book. Mr Abse relates some very amusing anecdotes, and his informal yet controlled style is capable of moving without any sense of dislocation from these lighter occasions to deeply serious and affecting passages.' --Times Literary Supplement

'Incident and character are vividly depicted, period is richly evoked and the descriptive passages remind one what a splendid poet the author is.' --The Observer
