Now All Roads Lead to France Hardback edition by Matthew Hollis
Matthew Hollis is the author of Ground Water, shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize for Poetry, the Guardian First Book Award, and the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. Now All Roads Lead to France is his first prose book. It was awarded the H. W. Fisher Best First Biography Prize and the 2011 Costa Biography Prize.
Poetry has never been so rigorous and diverse, nor has its audience been so numerous and engaged. Strong words? Not if the poets are right. As Ezra Pound wrote: 'You would think anyone wanting to know about poetry would go to someone who knew something about it.' That's exactly what Bloodaxe has done with this judicious and comprehensive selection of British, Irish and American manifestos by some...
Combining worldly wisdom with detailed understanding to produce poems that speak with a sense of purpose ond place, the poet writes a knowing, lyrical poetry set against a landscape of big skies and battened-downed horizons.
Frost returned to the safety of New England while Thomas stayed to fight for the Old.
It is these roads taken - and those not taken - that are at the heart of this remarkable book, which culminates in Thomas's tragic death on Easter Monday 1917.
Features letters between Eliot and his associates, family and friends - his correspondents range from the Archbishop of York and the American philosopher Paul Elmer More to the writers Virginia Woolf, and Ralph Hodgson - that shows the ways in which his Anglo-Catholic convictions could, at times, prove a self-chastising and even alienating force.
No poetry has touched readers' hearts more deeply than the soldier poets of the First World War. This book is published to commemorate the centenary of 1914, with specially commissioned covers by leading print makers.
From the earliest times poets have spoken out against the horrors of war - many dying on the battlefields on which they wrote.
This extraordinary anthology gathers together the most startling poems against war ever written - from an infamous last stand in Ancient Greece to the chemical warfare of the present day Gulf.
