Synopsis

In "Later On" F.T. Prince brings together three contrasting long poems written since 1980: "The Yuan Chen Variations", which are inspired by the Chinese T'ang Dynasty poet Po Chu-i, "His Dog and Pilgrim", an account of the legend of St Rock told from his dog's point of view, and "A Byron-Shelley Conversation". F.T. Prince's "Collected Poems" appeared in 1979. 'There is hardly a single poem in it that is not notable, always for its sheer felicity of verbal cadence, frequently for a memorable, quite personal peculiarity of phrasing, its fresh clarity of vision, its restrained yet poignant expression of emotion', wrote David Gascoyne, while John Ashbery commented that 'Undervalued at home and abroad, F.T. Prince ranks with Auden and Spender as one of the major English poets of his generation'.
