Yellow Tulips Poems, 1968-2011

by James Fenton

Poetry

Yellow Tulips Poems, 1968-2011 Synopsis

Poems is an essential selection by, as Stephen Spender put it, 'a brilliant poet of technical virtuosity'. Don't talk to me of love. I've had an earful And I get tearful when I've downed a drink or two. I'm one of your talking wounded. I'm a hostage. I'm maroonded. But I'm in Paris with you. From In Paris With You by James Fenton.

 

Winner of both the Queen's Gold Medal and the Whitbread Prize for Poetry, the author has given readers some of the most memorable lyric verse of the past decades, from the formal skill that marked his debut, Terminal Moraine, to the dramatic and political monologues of The Memory of War and Children in Exile.
