The book contains recent uncollected poems, including remembrances of Auden, Stravinsky, and Louis MacNeice, as well as previously uncollected early poems. Sir Stephen has also made considerable changes in the texts of his earlier work, eliminating some poems and significantly reworking many others. Stephen Spender is a signal figure in the history of poetry in English in our century. A poet of engagement, both political and emotional, he has witnessed and vividly described the traumas and trials of his age. This definitive collection of his poems is his essential testimony."--Back cover.
