5.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bunting is wrongly neglected but this excellent new biography will correct that. I picked it up knowing Briggflats but little else of Bunting's canon and nothing of him. The book sent me back to the poetry equipped to better appreciate place, time, sound and context. And BB himself emerges as a complex, riotous, flinty genius at the heart of modernism. Echoes of Ellman in a biography which is sympathetic and almost discreet in its drawing of the man and rigorous in its reading of his work. Must read.
