Dannie Abse is a Welsh lyrical poet and medical doctor with a choirmaster’s ear for language. Readers will hear, where there is narrative in these poems, a sometimes distant, sometimes nearby Welsh-English sound—call it pitch, call it history. And where there is song, something other—passages particularly beautiful in a language that is extra-English. There is mystical, moral sunlight in Abse’s poetry. This important book consists of poems selected by him from most of his lifetime’s work.”—Stanley Moss

DANNIE ABSE was born in Wales in 1925. He spent many years as a chest specialist in a London teaching hospital. He has published over 20 books, including four novels and a memoir.
