Eloquent, Moving. Like Donne at times
Superb touch, an exceptionally gifted and underrated poet.
Simply a great poet - who should be greater read
A very underrated poet, a tragedy enough he should die so young after a not particularly happy early life compounded by the fact that his work is overlooked. His awareness of the humanity of the enemy sets apart from even Owen; his victims are real men with mothers and girlfriends. His poems are technically innovative and his images persist.
