Gravel in my Shoe

 
9781784740412: Gravel in my Shoe

'The only peace: to know my place And what I now must do, Striding with the light full in my face, And gravel in my shoe.' 'Portent at Sunset' Bright, elemental, thought-provoking and formally ravishing: the poems that comprise Gravel in my Shoe bear the inimitable hallmarks of style that John Fuller has spent a fifty-year long career crafting. This accessible collection perfectly balances the shadow and light of life, the act of creation and oblivion, 'our ends and our origins' staring death straight in the eye, but also celebrating the wonder and awe of existence. Ultimately it shows us that 'life is too short, but poetry's eternal.' This is a tour de force collection, from a poet of tremendous power and dexterity.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The only peace: to know my place And what I now must do, Striding with the light full in my face, And gravel in my shoe. Bright, elemental and as dexterously brilliant as ever, John Fuller s latest collection takes as its subject our ends and our origins . Here are songs, serenades, literary cameos, an ode to a golden anniversary, a long letter to an old friend, and two majestic sequences: one dedicated to the Welsh woman of the woods, Mary Price; the other, sun-drenched sonnets that keenly observe the natural world against the flavour of our own mortality . With wit, warmth and wisdom, Gravel in My Shoe playfully balances the light and shade of life, in full awareness of its passing but with a spring in its step nevertheless. It shows us, ultimately, that life is too short, but poetry s eternal . Bookseller Inventory # AB99781784740412
