Walks in Rome by F.T. Prince

Description

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".

Author Biography

More recently he has been in Jamaica as Professor of English at the University of the West Indies, and at Brandeis University in the USA and Sana'a University in the Yemen Arab Republic as Visiting Professor.
