Description

Out Of Print ... The integral theme of Rain from a Clear Blue Sky is the unexpected, ironically tragicomic twists of life, here Ilumined through seven chronologically linked sections. These originate in childhoods real and imagined experiences, move on through mythic significances to unexpected deaths and religious question and then focus on the natural world and the human and social scale of living in a landscape as interpreted in a regional context in Mercer Simpson's first collection, East Anglion Wordscopes (Rockingham Press 1993) and finally develop into an ironic, sometimes quasi-historical overview of the human predicament. This powerfully evocative second collection should enhance Mercer Simpson's growing reputation as one of the most original and exciting new poets in Wales. From reviews of East Anglion Wordscapes: 'Mercer Simpson has a deeply felt connection with many of these places, which is brought to life by a sharp eye for the movement and texture of things' (Steve Griffiths, Planet) 'Rich with historic and folk allusion ... Beautifully produced... a book well worth possessing' (Glyn Pursglove, Acumen) 'A fascinating and delightful book . . . Essential reading for anyone interested in East Anglia (Suffolk Life)
