Reflecting a life spread across two continents, 'Impossible Preludes' continues Taylor’s restless probing of the contradictions of life and language. Here are love poems, poems about language and silence, an elegy for a cat, and an interview with a querulous mathematician, as well as poems dealing with the cruelties of contemporary world politics, ageing, and delight in nature. Once again, the collection shows the stimulating range of tone and style that has been a hallmark of all his poetry.
It’s Sylvia Plath - this Saturday 22nd October 2016, Perth Poetry Club is pleased to host a tribute to the poetry of Sylvia Plath, presented by local poets, Dean Meredith, Alexis Lateef & Amy Hilhorst.
Dean, Alexis and Amy are fans of Sylvia Plath and each will present their perspective on her poetry, and its influence on their individual poetry journey.
