Trilogy, Paperback / softback Book

Trilogy Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


As civilian war poetry (written under the shattering impact of World War II), Trilogys three long poems rank with T.

S. Eliots Four Quartets and Ezra Pounds Pisan Cantos. The first book of the Trilogy, published in the midst of the "fifty thousand incidents" of the London blitz, maintains the hope that though "we have no map;/ possibly we will reach haven,/heaven." Tribute to the Angels describes new life springing from the ruins, and finally, in The Flowering of the Rod - with its epigram, "... pause to give/ thanks that we rise again from death and live" - faith in love and resurrection is realized in lyric and strongly Biblical imagery."
