Out Of Print... It is somewhat paradoxical that the poems of Harri Jones, born in rual Breconshire, should be better known and more highly regarded in Australia, where he died tragically in 1965, than in his native country, from which he was a reluctant and sometimes bitter exile. Yet he stands with R.S. Thomas, Dylan Thomas and Vernon Watkins-one of the great modern Anglo-Welsh poets. Rural Wales is at the heart of all his writings, but his suffering awareness of war, exile, love, loss of belief and the conflict between passion and religion make him profoundly relevant to all who are alive in the twentieth century. An outstanding poet of passionate sexual love, his other themes are the sea, the search for a valid religious faith, the problems of identity, guilt, old age and death. He is a highly skilled craftsman, master, like W.H. Auden whom in some ways he resembles, of a wide variety of forms. This volume brings together the four published volumes: "The Enemy in the Heart" (1957), "Songs of a Mad Prince" (1960), "The Beast at the Door" (1963), and "The Colour of Cockcrowing" (1966) and adds a substantial number of poems not previously published.
