As promised, my review of Lambent Dreams. What’s it about? Poetry. Plain and simple:
The Poetry of Tallis Steelyard. This appropriately slim volume is the fruit of a unique artistic collaboration, bringing together the writings of one of Port Naain’s most major minor poet with the personal commentary of an esteemed cartographer and traveller, and the guiding notes of an informed poet-critic. You cannot say you have not been warned.
The poetry in this book is endlessly fascinating. I read the whole volume in the course of a morning, punctuated by short bursts of doing my day job, and I can’t wait to go back and read them over more closely to see if I can find some deeper meaning. (If, of course, there is any deeper meaning. Sometimes a poem is just a poem.)
