It has been said that poetry helps us to discover for ourselves a part of the world, however small, that we already know. And then, somehow, it sets us on another course. The poems contained in The Call of the Unwritten by Adrian G.R. Scott do just this. Full, as previously inferred, of autobiographical moments. And also infused with universal themes. Themes of everyday life intweaved with the greatness in each of us. Themes of loss and longing, of being found and of discovering one's rightful place in the world - whilst the radio plays on in the kitchen, companion to another life. Themes that include the hot leap of love and the blunt fact of death. The meaning of the stars in 'Last Rites' being a personal favourite. Read, inwardly digest, and walk on taller as a result.
