Inhaltsangabe: Perhaps best known for his much anthologized World War II poem, "Naming of Parts", and a number of radio plays and translations from the Italian, Henry Reed published only one volume of verse during his lifetime, "A Map of Verona" in 1946. Jon Stallworthy's introduction traces Reed's life and offers a critical assessment of the published and many unpublished poems, the "Lessons of the War", translations, songs, and early fragments included in this collection that should help establish Reed alongside the other great war poets.
'Tomlinson insists, and he has a right to insist, that he is as authentic a voice of modern Britain as Larkin is - Only in the great poets is content so intimately married to form'. - Donald Davie 'Against the word as spectacle, Tomlinson opposes the concept - a very English one - of the world as event - He is fascinated - with his eyes open: a lucid fascination - by the universal busyness, the continuous generation and degeneration of things'. - Octavio Paz --Octavio Paz
'He has divided his line according to a new measure learned, perhaps, for a new world. It gives a refreshing rustle or seething to the words which bespeak the entrance of a new life'. - William Carlos Williams. --William Carlos Williams
'Tomlinson, born in 1927, is a unique voice in contemporary English poetry, and has been a satellite of excellence for the past 50 years' David Morley, Guardian. 'Few poets are as natural or as exact as Charles Tomlinson - it's as if all his experience is waiting to be trapped'. Matthew Sweeney, Observer. --Matthew Sweeney, Observer
