Re-reading him after some years. I do love Louis Macneice, great poet of the everyday and the bittersweet. He sets out to make you feel quite pessimistic and grim, yet you end up laughing for joy.

This volume contains some great poems by this Irish Protestant poet, who died prematurely in 1963 at age 56. Most of his best poems were written in the 1930s and 1940s. He carried on the tradition of W.B. Yeats. ( )
