The Harper, Paperback / softback Book

The Harper Paperback / softback


Peter Redgrove, who died in June 2003, was a friend and contemporary of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath and became one of the most celebrated and prolific post-war poets - regarded by many as a true visionary.

The Harper, which gathers together his last poems, is a collection still charged with characteristic energy, eroticism and transforming imagination.

Redgrove's language thrills with thunder, rain and electricity, the air heavy with perfumes and balsams, wasps and spiders - and reading these poems is uncannily like re-entering a dream.

Peter Redgrove made us look at our world with fresh eyes, and he changed our perception forever.
