Walks in Rome

Hardback
In F.T. Prince's new poem a visit to Rome brings back memories of fifty years ago, today's graffiti contrasting with Mussolini's slogans. Things seen, a plaque for Stendhal or a chapel with paintings by Caravaggio, are used to suggest young and older experience. What David Gascoyne described as Prince's 'memorable, quite personal peculiarity of phrasing' and his 'fresh clarity of vision' are in evidence throughout this poem, his first publication since Later On .
