Seamus Heaney – Seeing Things

Faultless work. A collection that set him on his way to his Nobel Prize.

Gillian Clarke – Ice

Not a word out of place. Great balance, structure, the poet’s best book.

RS Thomas – Collected Poems

Over 500 pages. A fantastic read. One of Wales most important figures. At times his work is simply written, but what power.

Ted Hughes – Bestiary

His best work. I don’t think you can read poetry without reading Ted Hughes at some point.

Robert Frost – Collected Poems

The Master!

Gareth lives in Wales. He has his second collection out in June by Futurecycle called Shadows of Tryfan.
