Abstract or Description

Tim Dooley's first collection brings together poems written over fourteen years. Their range in theme and style is considerable, but together they represent a consistent view of life and a recognisable tone of voice.
The central sequence of poems, which gives the volume its title, articulates an inner development which is both personal and typical: the wakening of an idealistic consciousness to its responsibilities in the world. These poems exploit the freedom of association and unpredictable shifts of dreams, tempering those qualities with rigorous honesty and a sceptical comic sense.
