Hunts: Poems 1979-2009 gathers together highlights from
JohnGreening's eleven books along with about sixty new or
uncollectedpoems. At its heart is the poet's extraordinary
Huntingdonshiretrilogy, but the 'hunts' of the title range from
Ancient Egypt to NewJersey, from Hounslow Heath to the South Pole.
This collection -quite different in emphasis from his 1998
'Selected' and excludingonly Iceland Spar (2008) - restores many
out-of-print sequences andnarratives, such as the Captain Scott
epic, The Winter Journey, andGascoigne's Egg, about the R101
airship disaster. Omm Sety, the truestory of an Englishwoman who
believed she was the reincarnated loverof Pharaoh Sety I, appears
alongside extracts from all Greening'sEgyptian books. Hunts also
reprints The Coastal Path, which TedHughes and Seamus Heaney made a
top prize-winner in the Arvon/Observer competition, together with
the complete Fotheringhay, another Arvon prize-winner
