Cheshire Rising is the culmination of John Lindley’s exciting and successful year as the Cheshire Poet Laureate. This superb new collection skilfully blends commissioned poems with those reflecting an even broader thematic base, taking influence from both the physical and human landscape.
Central to Lindley’s poetry are his wry observations on the familiar things in life, pinning the poignant against the commonplace, but always presenting situations and experiences to which we can relate. Cheshire Rising fuses people with place and the past with what is both present and pertinent.
