This volume, edited by Professor Donald Watt, contains the bulk of the poems which Aldous Huxley published in The Burning Wheel, The Defeat of Youth, Leda, and The Cicadas. Richard Church contributes an introduction which discusses the quality and development of Huxley's verse, and its relevance to the nature of this many-sided man.
