AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Open House reveals David Brooks' award-winning talent as a writer and imaginative scholar. The poems in this volume take a number of forms, drifting between nature and philosophy, evoking a meditative quality that is both contemplative and full of grace. Spare and honed, Brooks' poems range in scale, from investigations into microscopic detail observing the smallest creatures and textures underfoot - stepped over, left in peace in the harmonious 'open house' - to the telescopic, revealing the smallness of human endeavour from a thoughtful distance.

'This much anticipated new volume is at once powerful, resonant and unreserved.' (Publication summary)
