An amazing collection from an amazing poet.

Excellent. Interesting notes and comments. I never knew that SB had translated some Mexican poems from Spanish. I imagine that most people buying this will, like myself, have already got, and read, most of the poems in the various other published editions. Really good to have a well produced edition like this.

This is a hefty tome, but the bulk of it is given over to notes on the poems rather than the poetry itself. Add to that the significant number of French works in here and you end up with a relatively slight collection of poems in English. Nothing wrong with that if you want the notes and untranslated poems, but overall I got the impression this collection was overly-padded. As it happens my copy arrived with a damaged cover so I returned it. But I won't be seeking out a replacement copy.

If you want to read poetry with depth and challenge, while considerable pathos and humour, and in the modernist genre, then it's wonderful, if you like a "sing a-long tune" perhaps best avoid.
