Synopsis

From his first wartime collection evoking a generation’s experience of a country made strange by blackouts and air raids to the consolatory wisdom of poems written later in his life, Great Britain’s Roy Fuller was a poet of the familiar and ordinary made extraordinary. Mundane details, observed with the author’s tolerant humor and acute eye, reveal depths and dissonances from which a civilized life may be created. On the centenary of Fuller’s birth, this generous selection—introduced by the poet’s son and including an afterword by Neil Powell, Fuller’s biographer—brings to a new generation of readers the work of one of the essential poets of the 20th century.
