Out Of Print ... This edition of Harri Webbs Collected Poems includes all the poems in The Green Desert, A Crown for Branwen, Rampage and Revel, and Poems and Points, together with as many again which have never before been publishedmore than 350 poems in all. Among them are a numbcr of poems written during the Second World War, translations from Romance and Celtic languages, tender love-poems, rollicking ballads, song-lyrics, satirical squibs, and occasional verse, all demonstrating the range and variety of Harri Webb work. Many of the poems have a political slant, whether Republican or Nationalist, and most were written out of a deep and passionate commitment to the cause of Welsh independence. Harri Webb was noted for his wit and erudition, for his historical perspective and awareness of contemporary realities, and in Wales he enjoyed the status of Peoples Poet. The poems gathered here are placed within the chronology of the poets life and the many allusions are explained by the editor, Meic Stephens, who was his friend for more than thirty years. This is the definitive edition of Harri Webbs poems on which his literary reputation will henceforth be firmly based.
