All Things Tire of Themselves

Hurry - Only 2 left in stock!
For "All Things Tire of Themselves", Arnold Wesker has selected what he considers to be his best and most characteristic poems. In a Foreword commissioned for this publication, TV writer and producer Michael Kustow describes it as 'an extended soliloquy about family, love, ageing, anger, Jewishness' whose 'predominant tone is one of sadness and disenchantment, but never resignation...'Out of this struggle with despair, the poet delivers a hard-won wisdom, 'a precarious triumph over thieving time.' In addition to his work for the stage, Wesker has published collections of stories, essays, a book for young people, an autobiography, and most recently his first novel, "Honey", but until now he has not brought out a poetry collection even though he has written poems and published them in magazines for many years.

About the Author

Arnold Wesker, who was knighted in the 2006 New Year's Honours list for services to drama, is a major British playwright. Born in London in 1932, he achieved early critical success with the three plays known as The Wesker Trilogy (1958-60). Since then he has written around forty more plays, as well as opera librettos and scripts for film, TV and radio. He lives in Hay-on-Wye.


"Arnold's Wesker's reputation has survived the vicissitudes of fashion, and it is now easier to see the lasting strengths and variety of his work." Margaret Drabble
