Small Humours of Daylight by Tom Weston

Regular price $23.49 Sale

Small Humours of Daylight is a skilfully crafted collection of poems expressed with the elegance and sophistication of a poet in top form. These are poems galvanised by a sense of island. Tom explores water, navigation, maps and voyaging: the island paradise and the site of the Fall. An island is a point of intersection, marked by means of a shell on a star-map, a place of arrivals and departures. “Tom Weston’s poetry is, for me, a visceral experience that I can’t fully explain. As I read it I get a knot in my stomach. One feels in every line the presence of a powerfully alert mind that is fully engaged with real and serious matters; it’s a little like watching a surgeon performing a delicate operation.” ~ Hugh Roberts, New Zealand Listener About the Author Tom Weston has four published collections of poetry to his credit and has appeared numerous times in literary publications such as Landfall, the NZ Listener, Sport and Essential New Zealand Poems.
