Poetry by Cecil Rajendra

Parables, Prophets & Pillocks by Cecil Rajendra

This is Cecil Rajendra’s 20th collection of poetry and marks over 40 years of creative writing.

There are not many poets who can attempt subjects like this, and succeed as often - and as brilliantly - as Cercil Rajendra does. When we find such poets we should cherish them.

That rare combination of 'dreaming poet' and 'man of Action' whose poetry has the capacity to reach the parts that reason, argument and even television programmes fail to touch.
