gilt titles spine; "The Reign of Sparrows is Roy Fuller's first book of poems - apart from a volume for children and some private press publications - since From the Joke Shop (1975). That book was a sequence in a single form: a feature of the new collection is its technical variety, from the five-line 'cinquain' to the elegaic 'pindarics' used by Matthew Arnold. But technique is always unobtrusively serving the poet's voice, whether speaking of the farce and nostalgia of growing old, the sweep of history, or the illuminations of science and art. Roy Fuller's breadth of reference and observations have rarely been greater, nor his humour sharper."; previous pwner's name onfep.; including notes - 69 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
