A diverse collection of 35 poems and one short story by a writer brought up in Merthyr Tydfil, comprising observant nature poems together with affectionate poems about the colourful Merthyr of his childhood in the 1920s and 1930s, including short biographical notes.
This is a really delightful collection of the poems of Leslie Norris. Each piece has an individual clarity and strength in form, content and atmosphere.
The solid form of stanzas, for example, in ‘The Strong Man’ and ‘His Father Singing’ contrast with the more loose style of ‘An Evening by the Lake’ and others, to form a varied and memorable view of people and nature.
There is a beautiful integration of mood and landscape, which gives the whole collection an atmosphere of its own. A very pleasant and interesting read.
