Description

In Reflections 2, RC Clermont explores further the themes visited in Reflections - the first anthology-such as family dysfunction economic malaise, the gross inequalities of the neo-liberal model and the post-Thatcher economic legacy (Economics II). The vulgar materialism of suburban England (Moonscape II) and consumption are explored (Wasteland II). New themes explored are the destructive economic, geopolitical and social climate of modern America (Atlantic). Jerusalem critiques the darker side of Englishness, xenophobia and the sense of 'entitlement' to one's own little piece of England. Commuting reflects on topics that everyone who has ever commuted into a city to work, and wondered whether their way of life is worthwhile. Tangibility sees culture, art, literature and learning as a signs of a civilised, enlightened society, increasingly under threat from the forces of consumerism and religion. Society II comments on the social vanity of the London rich. The Sporting Life II explores themes of bigotry and misguided assertions about sporting prowess. Once again, in Home and Abroad II, embarrassing Britons are targeted, and vanity and style are attacked in Images II. Proverbs II explores attitudes to success. RC Clermont uses the English haiku 5-7-5 format and the intention is say what is needed in as few words as possible. Contains strong languageshow more
