Another Way of Saying

By: Edwin Best (author)Paperback

4 - 6 days availability


Love, domesticity and spiritual doubt are prevalent themes in a collection ranging widely in tone from the bleak registers of "Cemetery Street" to the elegiac "Quartet" and the whimsical absurdity of "Changing Trains". But it is to the sea that the speaker most often turns in poems such as "Breakers", imbuing waves, pebbles, gulls and the paraphernalia of countless seaside holidays with a highly charged significance. This is a rich and accessible collection of "short lyrics, rhythmical fictions and odd episodes" in which the absurd, the fantastic and the strangely unsettling are never far away.
