About this book
New collection, offering a variety of lyrics, love poems and elegies, examining the private domains of people, and a shared humanity. 'It is Motion's engagement with a classic lyric line that makes his work rewarding. His clarity, iambic rhythms, natural idiom and subtle evocation of shades of emotion place him in apostolic succession to Wordsworth, Keats, Hardy, Frost, Thomas, Bishop and Larkin' Sarah Wardle, "Guardian"
A collection that offers a variety of lyrics, love poems and elegies, in which private domains of feeling infer other lives and a shared humanity - exploring how people cope with threats to and in the world around them, as soldiers, lovers, artists, writers and citizens.
