Collected Poems 1948-1998, publishing in D.J. Enright's 78th year, adds the poetry from his books published since 1987, and extends the selection of poems, particularly from his earlier works, bringing back into circulation some poems readers may have missed. This major collection culls work from fifteen of Enright's previous publications including The Laughing Hyena (1953), Addictions (1962), and Sad Ires (1975). His three most famous sequences are also reprinted here in their entirety: Terrible Shears (1973), Paradise Illustrated (1978), and A Faust Book (1979). These collected poems enable readers to see the fascinating development of this poet, from his sensuous early work set in Alexandria and Japan, to a more terse and ironic later verse.
