In gathering four decades of work, Hugo Williams' Collected Poems brings back into print a vast body of material long since unavailable - from his 1965 debut Symptoms of Loss, to Self-portrait with a Slide (1990) and including Writing Home (1985), described by Mick Imah in the Indpendant on Sunday as 'a classic creative autobiography'.
The edition is brought up to date with his most recent work: Dock Leaves, a PBS Choice of 1994, and Billy's Rain, winner of the 1999 T.S. Eliot Award.
