The weather in Japan by Michael Longley( Book )
14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 307 libraries worldwide
"In the space of two collections, Gorse Fires (1991) and The Ghost Orchid (1995), Michael Longley broke a long poetic silence and redrew the map of poetry at the end of the millennium. The Weather in Japan consolidates and expands the vision of those volumes, leading the reader through the various hells we have made this century. Preferring to see the horrors of political violence through the filter of the domestic, pointing up the fragility of the order we create, he takes us from the fields of Flanders, through Terezin and Auschwitz to the troubled north of Ireland. And, in images drawn from the west of Ireland, Italy, America and Japan, he explores the fundamentals of 'home' and 'civilisation'."--Jacket

The power of Robert Graves's poetry lies in the tension - almost a contradiction - between the 'practical impossibility' and the transcendent 'miracle' of absolute love continuing between a man and a woman. This brilliant alchemy of inspiration, realism and truth established Graves as one of the finest love poets of the twentieth century
Collected poems by Louis MacNeice( Book )
4 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 157 libraries worldwide
"Louis MacNeice (1907-1963) is rightly regarded as one of the foremost Irish poets of this century, but he was also a distinctive, gifted, and popular playwright. This unique selection of eight of MacNeice's best plays, most of which were written for BBC Radio, draws on the most authoritative texts to provide a much-needed reminder of the power of his dramatic writing." "The volume comprises MacNeice's famous The Dark Tower, published here for the first time in its third and final version; the saga play They Met on Good Friday and the parable The Mad Islands, both of which use explicitly Irish subject-matter; the stage play One for the Grave, which mercilessly satirizes television and commercialism; the epic Christopher Columbus; He Had a Date (in its second version), an experiment in radio biography; Prisoner's Progress, a prize-winning parable about an escape from a prisoner-of-war camp; and MacNeice's last play, Persons from Porlock, which traces the nemesis of an artist and was broadcast just four days before MacNeice's own death." "This generous and representative selection makes available again MacNeice's entertaining and innovative blend of fantasy and realism, prose and verse, and offers important new perspectives on MacNeice's poetry."--Jacket
