I love that you can get poetry of this caliber as a PDF, due to not having a Kindle. I knew all ready the work of this poet from his book Human Shade so was surprised to see these poems for the low price.
It is a testament to poets and writers like Robert Peake who share their work for us to enjoy at the click of a button. In this imaginative collection, we are opened up to a world of creative language using chess pieces and moves as a symbol for the human spirit from war to an aging father. Peake manages to touch on strong subjects with gripping images that will stay with you for days.
The stunning images and rhythm of the six sonnets in the poem `In Pieces- after The Lewis Chessmen,' will leave you lusting for more of Peakes poetry. A long poem of the highest quality with striking lines such as `She is worry cut from walrus tusk, marbled and polished crystalline.' at the beginning of the fifth poem `Queen' will leave your heart pounding and panting for more of his astonishing lyrical writing.
A brilliant little poetry book to be cherished and added to your collection.
