Book Description

10 Oct 2008
This collection of poetry from Richard Brooks is superbly written. Abstract and intellectual, the poet crosses from dark to light, anger to hope, death to life. Simple yet complex, the poems create a series of images in the reader’s mind and provoke deep thought on the nature of life and the universe. Richard Brooks was born in the North of England in 1956 where he spent his formative years before living and working in the South East. At the end of 2006 he moved to rural Lincolnshire and in Spring 2007 started to write Subterfuge and Irony.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectrum of feelings 12 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
At first I questioned the title of this book, but after reading the collection of subtle verse within was provided with an answer. I enjoyed the emotional twists and turns provided, and the sense of peering through a dusty window into the soul of the author. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine debut book 12 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
I found this collection thought provoking. There seem to be some underlying experiences that provided motivation for the writer. I think anger comes through but also warmth and sensitivity. I liked the writing style, it is sometimes blunt and direct, sometimes subtle, the vocabulary can be challenging on occasions. In summary I think the book is a book of contrasts (it has two sections: 'darkness' and 'light') and is very interesting.
