AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In A. D. Hope’s last book of poems, Orpheus, Hope wanted to represent, in what he instinctively knew was his last volume of poetry, the themes that preoccupied him for a life time. Amidst those poems in which he explores his mortality, ruminates on whether he will be remembered, celebrates his sense of alienation in a world in which he was destined to be an observer, there is a concentrated emphasis on love: erotic love; love between friends; love as voiced in poetry and that love which is engendered in him for women. ' (Author's introduction)
