A one-page preface by the author precedes 185 poems, “the bulk of my published verse.”

Belfast born MacNeice was a friend and contemporary of W. H. Auden and Stephen Spender at Oxford and his poetry has often been linked to their own. In recent years MacNeice’s poetry has been re-evaluated on its own terms, particularly by a new generation of Northern Irish poets such as Michael Longley and Paul Muldoon who’ve acknowledged him as a major influence.
