(The Phoenix Living Poets)

"A poet who divided his life and the attention of his poetry between Assynt in the West
Highlands, and the city of Edinburgh, Norman MacCaig combined ‘precise observation with creative wit’, and wrote with a passion for clarity." -- Publisher's blurb

The dustjacket design was by "Enid Marx who was selected by the London Passenger Transport Board to design the moquette seat fabrics for use on the seats of London buses and tube trains and later also worked for Penguin and for Faber" --

Series Note:
A series of slim books of poetry from a cross-section of poets of the period.

The series had its origins in poetry books published by The Hogarth Press that had been established in 1917 by Leonard and Virginia Wolff. In 1946 the Hogarth Press became part of Chatto & Windus. Typically the title pages of The Phoenix Living Poets series state joint publication by Chatto & Windus and The Hogarth Press.
