New and Selected Poems
A poet of tremendous energy and imaginative richness, Philip Salom's poetry has also been characterised by a vividly, sometimes fiercely sensual responsiveness to landscapes, people and objects. This major selection from his seven previous books shows his great range and growth in stature from the physicality of the early rural poems, to the internationally acclaimed Sky Poems, and, most recently, the inventive and passionate affirmations of love in The Rome Air Naked.
