His vision is a remarkably consistent one and the same elements recur again and again rocks, sea, mist, gulls and the natural world. The sheer range of influences reflect the extraordinary range and depth of his reading Rimbaud, Nietzche, and Whitman amongst many others and it is a measure of the strength of his work that such a personal voice emerges. The book is arranged chronologically and many of the poems are appearing in English for the first time. Notated and introduced by the author, this collection for the first time presents his poetry as a coherent and cross-referenced whole."
