Synopsis:

Robert Graves described poetry as his ruling passion and for him love was "the main theme and origin of true poems". He created a mythology where love, fear, fantasy and the supernatural play an essential role. Combining realism and magic, his poems are considered among the finest of the 20th century. In this volume Graves' poems appear without critical apparatus or commentary in an attempt to represent, in its purest form, the achievement of his 70 productive years.

About the Author:

Robert Graves was born in 1895 in Wimbledon. He went from school to the First World War, where he became a captain in the Royal Welch Fusiliers and was seriously wounded at the Battle of the Somme. He wrote his autobiography, Goodbye to All That, in 1929, and it was soon established as a modern classic. He died on 7 December 1985 in Majorca, his home since 1929.
