"This unique collection presents 75 poems by one of the major humanities scholars of the twentieth century. Prefacing the poems are an autobiographical introduction, a foreword by George Bruce and a frontispiece drawing of the author by Emilio Coia. Spanning six decades, the poems are grouped into cycles entitled 'Early Poems', 'A Weekly Scotsman', 'Meals', 'Poetics', 'Observations, 'Reflections' and 'After-thoughts'. In form and content the verse achieves a remarkable harmonization of erudition, technical accomplishment, wit, delight in language, zest for life, and compassion for humanity."
