"I first met Bob Walton and heard his poetry during a series of workshops with Brendan Cleary at the University of Sussex. Immediately I was impressed by his technical skill, his verbal range-English spoken and written with Welsh relish and bite, and his ability to shape a poem from all kinds of subject matter. His first collection, which I had the pleasure to publish when running Pighog, demonstrated these talents in ten poems, as a sampler of his accomplished style. The final poem in the collection, a powerful sequence entitled 'Nomad '64', is dedicated to Don Cherry, the celebrated American jazz trumpeter who died in 1995. Cherry once said: 'First it was form, then phrasing, and then sound, always sound.' Walton, not bad on the sax, is a lover of jazz and Cherry's description of his own technical evolution could equally be applied to Walton's as a poet. For Bob knows his forms inside out, and frequently plays with them. His phrasing is musical with a great sense of timing, and of the importance of line break and pause." --John Davies, Editor at Pighog Press
About the Author
Born in Cardiff in 1948, Robert Walton's first collection of poems, Workings, won the Welsh Arts Council New Poet Award in 1978 but, for reasons which are still a mystery to him, he stopped writing for almost twenty years. Robert resumed writing in the late 90s, initially working with artists in other media music, dance, storytelling, film and installation. His poetry pamphlet, Waiting for the Wave, was published by Pighog Press in 2012. He has co-written two plays for Inkling Productions Labyrinth (2012) and Green Shoots (2014). He is a member of the poetry workshop and performance group, The Spoke, which regularly presents its work in Bristol Poetry Festival, and is an experienced reader of his work.
