9780856462115: Shadow and Bone: Poems 1981 - 1988

"Shadow and Bone" is Peter Levi's first collection of poems since "Private Ground" (1981), apart from two small books of 'lamentations' - formal elegies for friends - "The Echoing Green" and "Shakespeare's Birthday". It is a rich and diverse collection, varied in subject and verse-forms. There are sequences about railway posters and America, poems for friends and fellow scholars or poets, poems about marriage and the natural world, epigrams, a magnificent long poem on the meaning of Christmas, and meditative lyrics.

About the Author:

Peter Levi, who died in 2000, was elected Professor of Poetry at Oxford University in 1984. Until 1977 he was a Jesuit priest. He was a classicist whose writing includes three uncategorizable books - on modern Greece, Afghanistan, and the English landscape - as well as translations, critical and scholarly works, and a thriller. But he was first and foremost a poet.
