A few poems in Montaigne’s Tower are nearly as fine as ‘His Swans’. But if I were to invoke the criteria that Grigson has enforced upon other contemporary poets, none of his poems would pass. I think of ‘Habitat’, ‘Joseph Haydn’, ‘In the Zoo’ and ‘What goes to which?’ as good companions to earlier successes: ‘Une Vie’, ‘Again discard the night’, ‘Not Visited Enough’, ‘Yahoos: A Variation and Reply’, ‘Paddington Street’, ‘Note on the Untraditional’, ‘Papposilenus’, ‘West Window’ and ‘If you had elected to stay’ from the Collected Poems: 1963-1980.
