by Aldous Huxley

In the early 20th century, a group of young poets gather in London to challenge the status quo and create a new kind of poetry.

Adams, Sherard Vines, and Osbert, Edith, and Sacheverell Sitwell. The poems in this collection are experimental and innovative, often challenging traditional notions of form and content. They explore a wide range of topics, from love and loss to politics and social commentary. The poems in Wheels - The Fifth Cycle are a product of their time, reflecting the social and cultural upheaval of the early 20th century. However, they are also timeless works of art that continue to resonate with readers today. This anthology is a must-read for anyone interested in modern poetry or the work of Aldous Huxley.
