BeschreibungStressing the urgency and high stakes involved in poetic composition, each poem in this collection is a sharp peak of concentration where intellect and emotion battle for control. Triggered by things such as a love affair or a configuration of light, these short pieces attempt to record the mysterious and rare coincidences between the realm of idea and the world of perception.

Pressestimmen'If Tribute is haunted by aphasia, exile and the loss of continuity, those fears are shadows that give body to the essences more insistently dwelt upon, and these are apprehended with a depth of spiritual resource that is almost mystical.' - Clive Wilmer on Tribute, Times Literary Supplement'Stephen Romer has achieved a breakthrough in these new poems. The death of his father has torn away a veil, releasing a fresh energy and vision.' - Hugo Williams
