Synopsis: This collection of odes is deliberately patterned, but expressed in a contemporary voice. The introductory epode flags the themes of the works to follow, interspersed with two epistles lighter in tone, and concluded with a song of lament and of hope.
Product Description: A strong new collection from an important poet, his first in seven years. It draws inspiration from the odes of Horace (and Keats), shows a new reflective and sober mood, but also evokes the rich world of the senses and the pleasures of the moment.
