44pp. Very good, clean dj.j. shows some light wear to spine and extremities. Previous owner's bookplate on ffe. Acquisition information neatly inscribed on t.p. else a very good, bright copy. Author has won numerous awards starting with his first book.. Over the decades William has written " open, deceptively simplistic poems that blend a civilised, charming narrative style with the often sensational vicissitudes of human relations... his first collection, Symptoms of Loss, is full of hardy realism and lyrical, crafted formalism . The book also contains - albeit minimalist - poems of subtle gestures and conceits, as in the ‘smile / [that] is the official seal on my marriage’ in ‘The Butcher’, or the existential doubts of ‘Point of Return’, in which the narrator muses how ‘in the end I treat / Uncertainty as life, / Arrival as defeat.’ ( B. Wilkinson) pgs
