HORAE MYSTICAE By Daniel Steward
Paperback: $8.57
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Most of the poems in this collection were composed between 1990 and 2010. Broadly speaking, each poem is isolated ‘event’ (for want of a better word), though a few of them are arranged in... More > groups that exhibit something of a common theme or idea. Some thoughts and perspectives inevitably recur, since they are all the productions of one imagination; but they are not really linked by any sort of thread.< Less
SIADHAL AND OTHER POEMS By Daniel Steward
Paperback: $8.27
Ships in 3-5 business days.
These poems have been selected from the large number that I have produced during the past four decades. I have no exact conception of when each was made, nor does it much matter. They are reproduced... More > here in an order that is almost, but not quite, random.

Ships in 3-5 business days.
Reflecting as it does the thoughts of an individual as they arise, Home is as unsystematic in form as most people’s private thoughts are. A very ordinary man’s very humdrum life is... More > disturbed by the illness of his mother. His journey home becomes a journey into the past: a reminiscence of childhood, growing up, first love, betrayal and change, and an exploration of the themes of time, nostalgia, permanence and impermanence. These themes articulate themselves through the central character’s own thoughts as he reflects that ‘home’ isn’t a particular place or time. Everyone has as many homes as there are alterations in time and place and perception and circumstance. Every change, every redefinition, relocates you. Things flow together into a totality the significances of which change according to the lights by which it is seen. A journey home is always a journey across a river that is at once different and the same.< Less
