Synopsis

This collection of R.S. Thomas's poems have been published to mark his 80th birthday. Many of his themes are prophetic to all our concerns; his attack on technology and our use of it to destroy the natural world; his passionate concern for all who suffer from the greed of others; the search for personal and national identity and for meaning in human life; the quest for and dialogue with a God now absent, now present. R.S. Thomas has won many awards, including the "Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry" in 1964 and the Cholmondeley Award in 1978.
