Anthony Thwaite (1930- ) is an acclaimed English poet and critic, author of more than twenty volumes of poetry and co-editor of the Penguin Book of Japanese Verse. The themes of the fifty poems selected by the poet himself range widely over time, history, war, death, faith, family, etc., and some, such as ‘Soseki’ and ‘Hiroshima’, concern Japan. Written in seemingly familiar settings and sometimes with humour, they always reveal ‘home truths’. The book is available from the publisher
