    One thought on “The City of Dreadful Night and Other Poems”

    1. The City of Dreadful Night is one of my favorite poem sequences, but its marvelous gloom and pessimism could not prepare any reader to expect the delicate beauty and freshness Thomson was capable of in many of the short lyrical pieces that form the other part of this collection. As much as I revere The City, I expected Thomson to be rather a one-note poet. I couldn't have been more wrong.
