F.T. Prince's "Collected Poems 1935-1992" incorporates all the work that he wished to preserve, from his earliest published poems to late, uncollected pieces. Prince has become best known for his wartime poem "Soldiers Bathing", a meditation on violence and redemption. "Collected Poems" reveals the riches of a lifetime's work. His poetry combines a deep affinity with European humanist traditions and a modernist rigour: here is one of the essential twentieth-century writers.
