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.
