Clive James's reputation as a poet has become impossible to ignore. His recent poems looking back over his extraordinarily rich life with a clear-eyed and unflinching honesty, such as 'Japanese Maple', became global news events upon their publication. His most recent collection, 'Sentenced to Life', was a phenomenal bestseller in the UK and in Australia, and his translation of Dante's 'The Divine Comedy' was a Sunday Times top ten bestseller in 2013. In this book, James makes his own rich selection from over 50 years' work in verse: from his early satires to heart-stopping valedictory poems, he proves himself to be as well suited to the intense demands of the tight lyric as he is to the longer mock-epic.
