Description

In Rungs of Time , Chris Wallace-Crabbe's fourth collection of poems to be published by Oxford University Press, the clutter of living both enchants and perplexes the poet. A list-poem of some hundred `things' that `are in the saddle and ride mankind' contrasts with philosophical introspection, or with those that celebrate his home country, Australia. The book has an `edgy vitality...and combination of seriousness and decorative hedonism' unique to this cosmopolitan poet, whose style, line by line, is alive to the delicate balance to be preserved between joy and loss, beauty and horror, frail mortality and high spirits.show more
