A poetry collection by the author of the internationally-acclaimed epic poem Vale Royal (published by Goldmark, 1995). There are 10 sections to Body Of Work, each named after a different somatic region. There are poems of the Hands, poems of the Lungs, Spine, Heart and Belly, etc. Subject matter is widely varied: there are urban poems, satirical and humourous verses, elegiac pieces, love poems, haikus and erotica, and a few longer pieces including 'De Havilland' (about the poet's airman-father who flew in night-fighting Mosquitoes in WWII). These are highly-crafted lucid verses which take the reader into an emotive landscape of literary vision; these are poems which clearly set out to communicate something of human experience.
