Frank Newfeld book design. "After fourteen years, during which the mettle of the individual spirit has been ever more greatly tried, Roy Daniells again publishes a book of verse, an affirmation of his own many-faceted fibre. The voice is contemporary; the tone is timeless. Culling from the poetic tradition of the seventeenth century, from the riches of the Bible, and from those of mythology, he crystallizes emotion and thought in jewelled form. He is true poet; yet the process of creative fusion has not excluded the presence of the man - sensitive, puckish, serious, essentially human." - front flap. Part I. Where the Great Caesar Came.
