R.S. Thomas (1913-2000) is one of the major poets of the twentieth-century, the greatest Welsh poet since Dylan Thomas, and one of the finest religious poets in the English language. This substantial gathering of his late poems shows us the final flowering of a truly great poet still writing at the height of his powers in his 70s and 80s. It begins with his autobiographical sequence, The Echoes Return Slow, unavailable for many years, and also includes, Counterpoint, Mass for Hard Times, No Truce With the Furies, and his final collection, Residues.

At his death in 2000, R. S. Thomas was widely considered to be one of the major poets of the English-speaking world, having been nominated for the Nobel prize for Literature. With Dylan Thomas, R. S. Thomas is probably Wales’s best-known poet internationally.Tony Brown provides an introduction to R. S. Thomas’s life and work, as well as new perspectives and insights for those already familiar with the poetry. His approach is broadly chronological, interweaving life and work in order to evaluate Thomas’s poetic achievement. In addition to presenting a full discussion of Thomas’s poetry, and its movements over time between personal, spiritual and political concerns, Tony Brown also examines Thomas’s contribution to the culture of Wales, not just in his writing but also his political interventions and activism on behalf of Welsh language and culture.

Whether you love poetry or haven't read it since school, The Splash of Words will help you rediscover poetry’s power to startle, challenge and reframe your vision. Like throwing a pebble into water, a poem causes a ‘splash of words’ whose ripples can transform the way we see the world, ourselves and God. Through thirty selected poems, from the fourteenth century to the present day, Mark Oakley explores poetry’s power to stir our settled ways of viewing the world and faith, shift our perceptions and even transform who we are.

Belonging and Estrangement in the Poetry of Philip Larkin R S Thomas and Charles Causley

Focusing on the significance of place, connection and relationship in three poets who are seldom considered in conjunction, Rory Waterman argues that Philip Larkin, R.S. Thomas and Charles Causley epitomize many of the emotional and societal shifts and mores of their age. Waterman looks at the foundations underpinning their poetry; the attempts of all three to forge a sense of belonging with or separateness from their readers; the poets’ varying responses to their geographical and cultural origins; the belonging and estrangement that inheres in relationships, including marriage; the forced estrangements of war; the antagonism between social belonging and a need for isolation; and, finally, the charged issues of faith and mortality in an increasingly secularized country.

Published to mark the centenary of the sometime ‘ogre of Wales’, this volume (by the executor of his unpublished literary estate) deals with the idées fixes that serially possessed his fiercely intense imagination: Iago Prytherch, Wales, his family, and of course a vexingly elusive Deity. Here, these familiar obsessions are set in several unusual contexts that bring his poetry into startling new relief: his war poetry is considered alongside his early poetry’s relationship to English topographical tradition; comparisons with Borges and Levertov underline the international dimensions of his concerns; the intriguing ‘secret code’ of some of his Welsh-language references is cracked; and his painting-poems (including several hitherto unpublished) are moved centre stage from the peripheries to which they’ve been routinely relegated.
