Welsh Retrospective is a selection of poems about his native Wales by one of Britain's most popular poets.

Dannie Abse's Welsh and Jewish backgrounds have been essential to his writings.

Wales and Cardiff, in particular, have haunted his imagination.

In this revealing new book book he writes movingly about the Cardiff of his childhood, home of his beloved Bluebirds football team, and also about the small village of Ogmore-by-Sea, location of early holidays and for many years his home in Wales.

Selected from the whole of Dannie Abse's writing career, the book includes such well known and well-loved poems as Return to Cardiff and In the Theatre alongside many previously uncollected poems.

Some poems draw on Jewish writings, others on Welsh language literature.
