Description - New Collected Poems by Charles Tomlinson

Charles Tomlinson's "New Collected Poems" gathers a lifetime's work, from the 1950s to 2006. A poet deeply responsive to English landscape, grounded in the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge, Tomlinson is also a writer of international renown, with wide-ranging interests in European and American poets, many of whom he has edited and translated. "Collected Poems" is an enriching journey across continents and literatures, friendships, collaborations and experiments, always with an eye keen for new places and possibilities. Tomlinson's poetry is witty and luminous, marked by precise observation and language, alert to surfaces and depths, to the local and the universal.
