From the dustwrapper, "The natural world, which [Kathleen Raine] came to love as a country child, has given her her imagery; but her poetry is never merely descriptive. For Kathleen Raine poetry is a mode of thought; within the physical lies the metaphysical and, knowing that what is most profound is also simple, she is careful to avoid any superficial complexity. Written in the spirit of the Sophia Perennis, Dr Raine's poetry is of those age old mysteries of annunciation and nativity, of life received from the ancestors and transmitted to the new-born."
This copy is in very good condition, with a little tanning to the wrapper's edges.
