Product Overview

"Listen to what they did."
"Don''t listen to what they said."
"What was written in blood"
"Has been set up in lead."
--from "Blood and Lead"
The leading poet of his generation, James Fenton has over the course of his career built a body of work breathtaking in its range and sensibility. From the passionate political poems that launched him into fame to the intimate illuminations of love--and loss of love--in his later work, Fenton''s poetry has always been marked by formal daring, wit, and an abiding empathy for the victims of war and political oppression. With selections from all of his published work since "The Memory of War," the entire text of his libretto "The Love Bomb," and new, previously uncollected poems, "Selected Poems "is an imaginative and formal tour de force.
