The work of an original haunting poet comes to life again, after fifty years. Lynette Roberts was born in Buenos Aires, a Welsh writer whose best work stands alongisde that of her near-contemporaries: David Jones, R. S. Thomas and Dylan Thomas, and yet an outsider in Wales. She is a war poet: her two published collections are about a woman's life in wartime. But she is also a love poet and a poet of the hearth. A late-modernist, she moves between the mythic and the domestic voices. Her work was praised by, among others, T. S. Eliot, Wyndham Lewis and Robert Graves. Experimental and challenging, Roberts opens out the language of poetry, exploring extremes of subject, scale and conception. Now this extraordinary poet is restored to her place in the development of twentieth-century British poetry.
