Basil Bunting is now recognized as one of the most important twentieth-century British poets. This volume supplements his Collected Poems, with work that survived his own rigorous self-editing, but remained uncollected at the time of his death in 1985. The poems represented include Pound-pastiches from the thirties, examples from the rich, densely patterned work of the post-Briggflatts period, and a series of free translations (one of which, "The Pious Cat," is translated from a Persian to a Northumbrian setting.
