Product description

Review

"There is verse which is directly melodic, which seems to sing rather than speak. Basil Bunting is a master of this...."

About the Author

Basil Bunting (1900-1985) was a major figure in Modernist poetry, recognized by Pound and Zukofsky as early as the 1930s, and crowned, with the 1966 publication of his masterpiece "Briggflatts," Britain's greatest poet.

Richard Caddel is Director of the Basil Bunting Poetry Center at Durham University. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Well, first things first, this is one book that does not do what it says on the tin. This isn't, by any stretch of the imagination, a 'complete' volume. At most it's a collected. Bunting was a notoriously harsh critic of his own work. Whilst this volume is significantly larger than the 'complete' that Bunting edited, it is still only 244 pages.

So, having got that out of the way, why five stars?

Because BB was one of the most interesting, rewarding, funny, poignant, cutting, accessible and all round enjoyable poets to emerge from the ferment of the 1930s.

Yes, of course Briggflatts is here, and it is magnificent. But there is a lot else which lies in its shadow. Try "What the Chairman Told Tom" which is just very, very funny, or the beauty of "I Am Agog for Foam".

There is so much to savour in this volume.

But that still doesn't make it complete.
