Angus & Robertson, 1959, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: Good, First
Charles Higham's spare and elegant verses explore both classical and modern themes. Predominately lyrical in mood, they are also sophisticated and polished, with a classical balance and sobriety. There are sparkling Mediterranean pastorals; quiet evocations of Holland, a London park, a Greek island; discreet comments on a favourite Biblical myth or the pleasures of human persons translated into animals. Accomplished translations complete a book that poetry lovers will read and enjoy more than once. From the 1000+ volume private collection of well-known Australian poet and author Guy Weller all of which are listed or will soon be listed on this site. Includes many hardcover Collected Poems from sought-after 20th century poets from all countries.
