Charles Williams was one of the finest-not to mention one of the most unusual-theologians of the twentieth century. This book is very early, and his immaturity as a poet is evident in many poems, but he occassionally soars. His mysticism is palpable-the unseen world interpenetrates ours at every point, and spiritual exchange occurs all the time, unseen and largely unlooked for. A Song of Opposites" and "Christmas II" are among the very good ones.

Charles Walter Stansby Williams (20 September 1886 – 15 May 1945) was a British poet, novelist, playwright, theologian, literary critic, and member of the Inklings.

The poems of prolific poet and author Charles Bukowski drudge through the mundane aspects of everyday life – work, life, relationships. But there is a bittersweet candidness to his observations that pull at the universal human condition, and that’s what continues to arrest readers today. In 1986, Time Magazine called Bukowski the ‘laureate of American lowlife.

Definitely not "Taliessin", this book is chiefly of interest as a window into William's style before he fully developed the unique structure that makes his mature poetry so great. I rated the volume 3 stars, to contrast it to what was to come after. If it had been the first and only work by Charles Williams I had ever read, I might have been tempted to rate it higher, but as it is, it pales in comparison to "Taliessin through Logres" or "The Region of the Summer Stars", or even "The Advent of Galahad". This is definitely the work of a poet still learning the art. My reaction to it was similar to listening to "Das Klagende Lied" by Mahler - a fascinating glimpse of an artist in the making, but not yet there.

That said, there is still much to enjoy in this book. "Twelve Sonnets" is radiant with pure beauty for its own sake. Someone should set them to music. "The Epiphany" and "The Wars" stand on their own as worthy, thought-provoking reads. In general, the second half of the volume is far better than the first (Perhaps the poems are arranged in chronological order?). But in my own opinion, by far the prize of the lot is a very strange piece near the front called "At Dawn" - an account of the rejoicing in Hell after a decisive victory over Heaven, with New Jerusalem in flames, Michael the Archangel defeated, and God Himself fled into exile. Masterfully constructed, it does what only the very best poetry can do, which is to bring fresh life to stale old truths, and to force us to see the familiar from new perspectives. "Poems of Conformity" is worth reading on the strength of this work alone.

Recommended to Williams fanatics everywhere, and to completists.

T. S. Eliot once said that Charles Williams was the best living poet. This book is very early, and his immaturity as a poet is evident in many poems, but he occassionally soars. "A Song of Opposites" and "Christmas II" are among the very good ones. Those familiar with Charles Williams will find many of his favorite themes here as he was beginning to work them out. I might note that there are 16 Christmas-related poems here (from the annunciation to the flight into Egypt). These are: "In the Land of Juda", "Gratia Plena", "Presentation", "Commentaries - V", the first 3 poems of "The Christian Year", "Mater Dei", Quicunque Vult", "Christmas" (4 poems) & "Epiphany" (3 poems).
