To mark his 80th birthday Maurice Harmon presents a sample of poems written in the last two years together with selections from several recent collections. In these pages the range and variety of Harmon's work is evident. He has a distinctive voice, both serious and playful, combining love poems with political satire, elegies with family portraits; he also writes poems of surprising eroticism.
