Be seated, thou : poems 1989-1998 by Dannie Abse( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dannie Abse, the great Welsh poet, is clearly in the devil's party: is work has a cauterizing honesty and a clear and lyrical beauty that serves his and our humanity. Like William Carlos Williams and John Keats, Abse is a medical doctor who deals with life and death with the steady hand of one who is especially familiar with them, as if they were fellow citizens. Of course his practice here is song and not medicine, and that song wounds and heals. This is a collection of mostly new poems with representative selections from his early work. Abse has written over twenty books, including the poetry collections Arcadia, One Mile (1998), and White Coat, Purple Coat (1989), and the novel Ash on a Young Man's Sleeve (1954)
