Acerca de


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.

About the Author:

Christopher Logue (1926-2011) was educated at Prior Park College, Bath, and at Portsmouth Grammar School. He served as a private in the Black Watch and spent sixteen months in an army prison. His publications include several volumes of poetry and a pornographic novel. The first collection of his reinterpretation of Homer's Iliad, War Music, was shortlisted for the 2002 Griffin Poetry Prize; Cold Calls, the fifth instalment of the War Music series, won the Whitbread Poetry Prize in 2005.
