Douglas Clark: Dysholm, Benjamin Press, Bath

This collection is a tour of the obsessions of Douglas Clark culminating in a reprise of Love Poems. All the familiar characters make a final appearance. This book represents the end of an era and who knows what the future will bring.

The cover graphics of my publications may be viewed. A current selection of my poems is available.

Some of these poems first appeared in `Lines Review', `Acumen', `Outposts Poetry Quarterly' and the `Avon Literary Intelligencer'.

`Dysholm' is thought to have been written by my great-great-great-aunt Jane Pettigrew.

`Genealogy' is based on research by my cousins Betty Thomson and Margaret Martin of Lanarkshire.

`Love Poems' are extracted from `The Horseman Trilogy'.
