Beschreibung

2013 marks Dannie Abse's 90th birthday. In his lifetime he has published an astonishing array of work including poetry, fiction, criticism, plays and autobiography but it is as a poet that he is best known and loved. In Speak, Old Parrot he returns to themes of loss, love, medicine and its moral implications, the nature of creativity, Jewish folk tradition and the passing of time. The poems are observant of the outside world as well as the inner life and emotions but most of all they are a joy to read.

Vorwort
A new anthology of poems from one of Britain's most well-respected poets

Autorentext
Dannie Abse was for many years a chest specialist in a London teaching hospital. A poet, reviewer and playwright, he has written and edited more than fifteen books of poetry, as well as books about medicine and also fiction. He is the author of Ash on a Young Man's Sleeve and several autobiographical volumes, including Goodbye, Twentieth Century, which was published in 2001 to critical acclaim. He died, at the age of 91, in September 2014.

Klappentext

'Abse's poems are filled with wonder. He remains one of our few great poets of married love.' Elaine Feinstein, The Times

Praise for Dannie Abse's
THE PRESENCE

'The Presence is a fragment of autobiography written from the most private part of a poet's heart, with a pen dipped in blood and tears. That it transcends this to become both elegiac and celebratory, to inhabit both the suffered present and the beloved past, places it almost beyond the scope of routine criticism' Carol Ann Duffy, Daily Telegraph

'A surprisingly joyful and compelling book ... Imbued with all the best qualities of what it means to be human and in love' Owen Sheers, Independent on Sunday
