Douglas Clark: Horsemen, Benjamin Press, Bath

`Horsemen' is structured in four sections. Initially a selection from poems chronicling the end of a relationship. Secondly a sequence documenting reaction and the aftermath. Thirdly a retreat into the world of the `Cat Poems', written for adults with children in mind. Finally a long narrative poem based on a history of the Mongols. Many of the themes are continued from `Troubador'. At heart `Horsemen' is a book of the cleansing of the spirit. The first three sections were written in Bath; the final section in County Durham.

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