The Glasshouses

Author: Stuart Barnes  

Paperback

Exquisitely crafted, these poems balance attention and adventure, emerging from a 'creche of stars' to blast wild and high in gilded radiance. With their gorse and honey, their 'yellow spurs' and 'sunstruck ribs', they are luminous and joyful, without forgetting bruises and shadows.
