Dante's drum-kit by Douglas Dunn( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terza rima, the form which Douglas Dunn calls 'Dante's drum-kit', supplies him with the structure for his own meditation on the afterlife, 'Disenchantments'. Other poems in this book are evidence of the author's dazzling technical adroitness, which is matched, furthermore, by the ambitious range of themes he addresses. High seriousness and high jinks are equally at his command, and readers will welcome a collection which shows the poet of Elegies and Northlight performing with undiminished energy and stylishness."--Jacket

The noise of a fly by Douglas Dunn( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Noise of a Fly' is the first collection from Douglas Dunn in sixteen years, and the first since he was awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 2013. It is a book brimming with warmth, mischief and a self-deprecating humour, as well as with a charming, 'Larkinesque' crankiness: a quarrel with ageing, an impatience with youth, the grievousness of losing friends and colleagues. But for all its intimate, hearthside rumination, this is a volume of poems that looks outward in equal measure: at Scottish independence, British politics and an international refugee crisis, and reflects unflinchingly on what it is to consider oneself a contributor to society
