Abstract:

Robert Peake's incredible eye for detail illuminates this collection of delicately-attuned poems. Each explores a certain kind of knowledge, one that is felt and experienced, known in your heart and in your bones as much as in your mind. From postcards to portraits, from ancient and modern wars to cosmopolitan cities, and even the small matter of a miniature ornamental skeleton, Robert Peake finds a sharp focus for the bigger picture. These carefully-controlled and eloquent poems know the subtle and deep consequences from each small gesture; the ripple-effect across each story, the altering of lives and history; the still, quiet centre from which it all begins.
