Poems From Shaw Island By Brian Lynch
Paperback: $3.62
Prints in 3-5 business days
These poems, for the most part, represent writing done while living on Shaw Island (in the San Juan Islands, Washington) from 2006 through 2007. The first two poems in the collection, Pieces of Shaw... More > and Mood Fog Clearing, were written much earlier, in 1990. Mood Fog Clearing was published by Prune Alley in 1991 (Prune Alley: The Orcas Island Library Literary Quarterly, II(4), 26-7). All the others appear in print for the first time (save the odd appearance on the family website or a personal gift). Most of the work has as its focus an evocation of the spirit of Shaw Island. Some of the poems head off in directions (inward and outward) that leave Shaw far behind, but always find their way back, in spirit, to the unique vision and music which is at the heart of the island.< Less

More > 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond.
