The Winter Book: New Poems
by Alan Riach
‘The Winter Book is a vision of our times. It’s full of big poems which encompass a range of experience, engaging with ideas, situations, places, and the why of it. Political anger is poured into strong, argumentative, emotionally engaging poems: no easy task’ – Gerrie Fellows
The Winter Book begins on the ice and ends at the well at the world’s end.
Dark castles of bad management and wasted resources are opposed by the forces of art, the virtues of openness, a gathering sense that borders are sometimes precious things that need to be protected, and that travelling across and beyond them is equally vital.
