About the publication
From childhood to middle age, from the everyday to the mythological, as plain-spoken realism or surrealist fantasy, in England, Switzerland, Greece and Finland, the poems in this collection cover a lot of ground. But they all have something in common; the suggestiveness of the language Mike Horwood uses to present action, objects and places, which Jo Shapcott describes as "his ability to make simple things in the material world resonate with mystery."
In Mike Horwood´s world appearances are not always what they seem, something moves just below the surface, so that reading these poems we feel like the narrator in 'Bream', half glimpsing the fish in the lake's depths, "like the suspicion of movement underwater at the point where vision and imagination meet."
