R. S. Thomas (1913-2000) is one of the major poets of the twentieth-century, the greatest Welsh poet since Dylan Thomas, and one of the finest religious poets in the English language. This substantial gathering of his late poems shows us the final flowering of a truly great poet still writing at the height of his powers in his 70s and 80s. It begins with his autobiographical sequence, The Echoes Return Slow, unavailable for many years, and also includes, Counterpoint, Mass for Hard Times, No Truce With the Furies, and his final collection, Residues

R.S. Thomas (1913-2000) is a major writer of our time, one of the finest religious poets in the English language and one of Wales's greatest poets. His output was prolific: over six decades he published some 25 individual collections of poems, as well as several volumes of prose. A substantial number of his poems, however, have hitherto remained uncollected, and often elusive – poems published in newspapers, magazines and journals (many of them obscure), as well as in private or limited editions. Uncollected Poems – published to mark the centenary of Thomas's birth – brings together for the fi

"R. S. Thomas is a major figure in the landscape of contemporary poetry, our leading Christian poet and a modern voice that resists passing fashion and the standardisation of the human spirit." "What gives force to his poetry also shapes his autobiographical prose. R.S. Thomas learned Welsh as an adult, and directed his career as a priest so that it took him back to north Wales, his birthplace and the stronghold of the Welsh language. This need to reclaim his identity in a particular place and a particular culture is analysed most clearly in works originally written in Welsh and now gathered together for the first time in this volume." "Here is a collection of Thomas's most personal reflections. Former Paths charts the beginnings of the journey; The Creative Writer's Suicide meditates on his loss and retrieval of his native language; No-one traces the path from his Anglesey childhood through the various parishes of his care as a priest, to his return to north Wales, to the Llyn Peninsula; A Year in Llyn is his alert record of the natural world around him."--Jacket
