Viva La Vida free pdf This is the seventh volume of Peter Abbs' poetry. Dana Gioia, the American poet and critic, described Peter Abbs as 'the rarest of writers - a philosophical poet with a genuine lyrical gift'. The poems gathered here continue to range broadly with a philosophical eye. They include a new group of autobiographical poems, some elegant love poems, and a powerful and disturbing sequence on the breakdown and madness of Nietzsche. The final sequence, Ars Poetica, affirms the power of poetry - of cadence and metaphor, of silence and heteroglossia.
