Writing of Charles Tomlinson's most recent collection, Donald Davie declared, "Only in great poets is content so intimately married to form." This volume spans Tomlinson's work over thirty years and shows his poetry moving continually between two poles--England and America, country and town, home and abroad, nature and history. Tomlinson writes with a special reverance for the natural world and a distrust of the unfeeling human that would inflict violence on it. Our proper relation to the world is suggested in his creation of a poetic freshness, enhanced by wit, humor, and emotion.
