Selected Poems 1967-1999
These selected poems of Richard McKane, written from the mid-1960s to the turn of the century, amplify and vastly expand his first book Amphora for Metaphors (1993).
This collection is a companion volume to Poet for Poet (mainly translations), also published by Hearing Eye and chosen by Helen Bamber OBE on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs.
Richard McKane's arrival has been long delayed, but now he steps into the rather crowded ranks of the most brilliant poets of the last twenty years or more. His poems are faultlessly alive, so fully worked out.
