CommentsA remarkable collection of seventy-five poems by the poet, scholar and antiquarian bookseller Arthur Freeman. Twelve of the poems are unpublished with sixty-three from nine previously published collections, spanning seven decades. Freeman writes with wit and style, in a voice his own. Novelist and poet Robert Nye wrote about an earlier volume of his poetry: “I appreciate the way you seem to write poems only when you have something to say, which might not otherwise be said.” And Helen Vendler wrote about the same volume that Freeman’s poetry “gave me such pleasures, poem by poem.”.
