Adamastor by Roy Campbell, 101 pages

A collection of poems by one of the foremost English language poets of the first half of the twentieth century, the poems of Adamastor are largely traditional in style, with Campbell's African background supplying an exotic element.  The dense imagery is difficult but rewarding, for his poetry is, like his description of a cobra, "venomous with truth."
