Paul Evans (1945-1991) was a significant member of a group of radical new poets that appeared in England in the late 1960s, but his work remains scattered through a number of small-press publications from 1970-1987 and is now entirely out of print. This Selected, edited by poet and academic Robert Sheppard, redresses the situation and makes available a broad selection of Evans' work from throughout his career - a career that was cut tragically short by a climbing accident on Snowdon.
