Abstract:

The poems of Steve Griffiths show a vigorous, compassionate and intelligent sensibility confronting important issues both public and private. His language ranges from the stark to the sumptuous and is tempered by humour and a keen sense of irony. This new Selected Poems includes work from his three previous collections, some in revised form. These include moving poems about the poet's hometown in Anglesey; poems inspired by his work as a community activist in London, as well as poems about love, parenthood and family life. Also included is a selection of new poems on various themes, ranging from sharp portraits of urban life to meditations on rural landscapes.
