Here it is introduced and discussed by Peter Dale who has also appended some early poems, and one much later piece, of related interest." "Peter Dale has been working on his translations for some thirty years, As ever, he takes the hardest - and for the reader, most rewarding - route in making versions with corresponding rhyme and metre. The result is a fresh view of an intriguing poet,somewhat neglected but now revived in English."--book jacket." ;
