Sinopsis: Of Alvarez, Peter Porter wrote of his "decorum", "finely phrased lyricism", "stoical weight", and that he "possessed talent of a high order". It is almost twenty-five years since Al Alvarez last published a book of poetry. That volume, Autumn to Autumn and Selected Poems 1953-1976, contained all that Alvarez wished to preserve of his poetry at that time, and it was greeted enthusiastically by the reviewers. Alvarez has not been a prolific poet, but as another admiring critic has written, though "slight indeed in volume", his verse "is rich in its economy". If we need an explanation for why the New & Selected Poems is not twice the length of its predecessor, that same critic's explanation is assuredly the right one: "Perhaps the standard he sets [for himself] is too high." Alvarez's poetry has been unavailable for far too long, and The Waywiser Press is proud to be making it available again.
