In the Sign of the Rainbow by Philip Sherrard
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the first extensive collection of Philip Sherrard's poetry. Highly regarded for his verse translations of such poets as Cavafy, Elytis, Seferis and Sikelianos, he has previously published only two booklets of poetry. He has a fine lyric gift, and a style whose clarity owes something both to English and Greek traditions. "In the Sign of the Rainbow" shows his consistent development as a poet, from early poems written during the war - when he saw active service in Italy, Austria and Greece - to those written in his adopted Greece. The search for spiritual values is the constant theme of his poetry, which is forceful in its critique of modern materialism.
