  • High on Rust: Ray Webber Selected Poems

    1 Review(s)

    High on Rust is the debut collection of Bristol-based poet Ray Webber: at the tender age of 93!

    Webber has been writing poetry since 1946, during his final year in the army. After leaving the army Webber studied literature and art in his spare time and became fascinated by the work of T.S. Eliot, Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, Jean Paul Satre and Franz Kafka. Eliot, who Webber regards as the first great modernist, remains the single biggest influence on his literary taste.

    The poems in this collection have been selected by poet and musician Steve Bush and date from the mid 1970s to the present day.
