Light tone, light wear. Solid copy. Second book by well-regarded Welsh poet, who travelled through US and Canada as a tramp, until losing his leg in a train accident. While living in extreme poverty, his poetry impressed George Bernard Shaw, who helped launch his popularity. "The contrast between D's outer life and the apparently effortless ease, delicacy and perfection of almost every poem is remarkable." - Frederick Page.; 75+2 pages.
