9780571177615: Selected Poems of Christopher Logue

Christopher Logue has had the most varied and colourful poetic career. Escaping the drabness of post-war England for the freedoms and excitements of bohemian Paris, he started to write and publish poems as a member of the expatriate community which also included Samuel Beckett and Henry Miller. He then returned to London and participated in the cultural revolution of the sixties, writing song lyrics, inventing the poster poem and appearing at literary happenings. More recently he has devoted himself to a new English version of Homer's Iliad - 'the best translation of Homer since Pope's' (New York Review of Books) - three instalments of which have now been published by Faber. Selected Poems gives the reader, for the first time, a proper idea of Christopher Logue's lyrical gifts, as well as his irrepressible outspokenness and sense of artistic adventure. It contains fine poems which have been out of print for too long and others now regarded as classics.
