Summary:

Conducting a journey from boyhood to manhood, this is the revealing autobiography of poet Andrew McNeillie. From an airplane crossing north Wales, the middle-aged writer looks down on the countryside of his childhood in this fascinating memoir, recalling an almost fabulous world now lost to him. From an ordinary daily life and education in Llandudno, this account follows the subject through some of the wilder parts of Snowdonia, depicting McNeillie’s experiences in nature during a period of increasing urbanization. Continually crossing the border between town and country, this recollection communicates an almost Lawrentian aspect to the author’s intense relationship with the natural world as well as the place of man within it. Acute and powerful, this exploration also delves into McNeillie’s relationship with his father, his discovery of literature and the development of his own poetic sensibility, and his growing awareness of the opposite sex. Triangulated between three locations, this engaging story visits the poet’s birthplace, a Snowdonian lake, and the subject’s home in his teenage years. A beautifully written eulogy for a retreating countryside now valued more for its leisure potential than as a source of human fulfillment, this narrative is shaped by the natural world and by nature poetry, clearly illustrating the evocative experience of memory and writing.

Summary:

When Edward Thomas died in the First World War, very few of his poems had been published, but he is now recognised as one of the finest and most influential poets of the last century. Although often referred to as 'a poet's poet', his writing has an almost universal appeal. He wrote accessibly, on traditional themes - the natural world, human relationships, transience and mortality. And yet his poetry is alive with the critical intelligence that came from years of writing non-fiction and reviewing verse. Branch-Lines captures the range of Thomas's achievement, not least by combining poetry with prose. In this unique collection, fifty-five contemporary poets reflect on Thomas's craftsmanship and enduring power. Some have chosen poems of their own in which they detect his influence, others have written new poems in his honour. Each poet has also contributed a piece of prose, and the volume contains an introduction, four critical essays, illustrations, a Foreword by Andrew Motion and an Afterword by Michael Longley. Branch-Lines offers a fascinating perspective on the workings of literary influence, with personal insights from some of the leading poet-critics of our time. 'The collection has a double value. It is a celebration of Thomas, and dignified tribute to his achievement; at the same time it bears witness to his powers of regeneration' - Andrew Motion.

Summary:

Established in 1968, John Fuller's Sycamore Press was an important independently run press that published some of the most influential and critically acclaimed writers of the past half-century. In addition to publishing established authors, such as W. H. Auden, Philip Larkin, and Peter Porter, the press sought to promote young poets, many of whom have gone on to achieve great success. The Sycamore Press ceased operations in 1992, but it remains an excellent example of the unique qualities associated with the small press movement in England.John Fuller & the Sycamore Press: A Bibliographic History explores the press's rich history on several levels. In addition to a full descriptive bibliography of all Sycamore Press publications, the book also includes a foreword by John Fuller and transcript of an interview conducted with John Fuller on 31 March 2007. Supplementing the descriptive bibliography are numerous personal reflections written by Sycamore Press authors about John Fuller, the press, and the works it produced.

Summary:

These evocations of wilderness and the natural world draw on the author's experience living for a year on Inishmore, one of the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. In the tradition of William Butler Yeats, the poems look to Celtic traditions, are sometimes formal in structure, rely on straightfoward and striking language, and change in mood from joy to rage to elegy.

Summary:

The Aran Islands lie off Western Ireland. All three are small—wastes of rock—without trees—without soil. In winter storms they are almost smothered by the sea, which, because of the peculiar shelving of the coast, piles up into one of the most gigantic seas ever witnessed by man. This unique book is at once vivid autobiography and the dramatic story behind Robert Flaherty's magnificent film "Man of Aran," produced in 1934. It is an epic saga of the heroic struggle of the Aran Islanders in an elemental environment. Pat Mullen was one of the actors in the film; but his part was more than that of acting. He was the intermediary between the producer and the islanders, who made the film possib≤ and much of its spirit is derived from Mullen's own character. There are the experiences and the philosophy of the islanders themselves, and finally the impact of the dynamic Robert Flaherty upon their isolation in the Atlantic seas. It is an epic story sparkling with true Celtic humor. "You say we are primitive. We are. Just primitive men and women left behind by what you call progress. But we are happy.It is not the happiness of ignorance, for we are our own masters. Our work on this film is the first we have done for any man. The only master we have ever known is the sea." —"Tiger" King, Robert Flaherty's "man of Aran"
