The Music of Ourselves
Centred on Harry Owen’s year as the inaugural Poet Laureate for Cheshire, this exciting new collection displays a breadth of imagination ranging from the serious to the light-hearted and from Cheshire to New South Wales.
One of Owen’s most persistent influences is the dwindling natural environment - its beauties, dangers, mysteries - and several of these poems explore ideas based on what he fervently believes is the most elemental of all our relationships: that with the world of which we are an inseparable part yet we seem determined to destroy.
