AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Shifting Windows is a tight selection of Geoff Page's travel poems published since 1986, most of them drafted on trains in Europe but with a smaller number set in South Korea, India and New Zealand. Page has always been acutely aware of the ironies of history. Many of these poems are therefore suitably sardonic; a few, however, remain defiantly lyrical. All are in eight lines of rhyming tetrameter, a form which Page has found seductively congenial for more than twenty-five years. Note: most of these pieces have appeared in Geoff's chapbooks, so if you've already bought them, there won't be all that much that's new. If you haven't, you'll really enjoy the wry humour and trenchant observation.' (Publisher's blurb)
