Poetic Obituaries: Oliver Bernard's first book of poems,
Country Matters, was published by Puttnam in 1961. He went on to publish several more books of poetry and translations of Rimbaud, Apollinaire and other French writers. His luminous bilingual edition of Rimbaud's Collected Poems, published in 1962 by Penguin, became a classic and an enlarged edition of his complete poems was published by Anvil last year. Bernard's collected poetry was published as Verse &c in 2001.
