Introduction by Betty Radice

A member of the circle of new poets who took as their model the stylized Alexandrian school, he wrote with a sensitivity to sound and imagery that completely over rode the limits of traditional Latin poetry. The stormy relationship with Cynthia dominates his work: as his poems range in mood from flights of ecstasy to brutal, baffled despair and in style from fresh, sensuous lyricism to harder, more polished detachment, they create an unforgettable picture of brilliant but tormented man.
