GAVIN EWART'S poems, in the phrase he has used of jazz, mostly go 'straight into a vein'. Gavin Ewart will not allow his poetry to 'set firm as amateur toffee'. Quickness fills his work; it is the best thing in the face of 'that long night. Their wit ensures the swift penetration, the shot of emotional truth at once hitting the spot. Over Ewart's long career, that spot has sometimes been the funny bone, sometimes the heart, sometimes - in his more widely social or political poems - the elusive sites of conscience and good.
The poems in the Selected Poems were chosen by Ewart before his death in 1995 and were published for the first time in 1996. They are a selection of the best work from a writer of poetry for both adults and children who had a long and productive career.
