William Plomer: Selected Poems

William Plomer

Little Island Press  

He was E.M. Forster’s “favourite contemporary poet”. W.H. Auden extolled his “first-class visual imagination”. Yet for most readers, William Plomer is now a faintly remembered name. By turns lyrical, amatory, satirical and dramatic, Plomer addresses his favourite subjects – Africa, the divided self, aesthetic pleasure, the macabre and the absurd – with a formal assurance, bleak wit and urgency of feeling. This rich and thorough selection presents, for the first time in almost fifty years, Plomer’s best.
