Perth Launch: "Impossible Preludes" Poems 2008-2014 by Andrew Taylor!

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.
