Last Harvest (Paperback)Harry Guest (author)
Paperback 98 Pages
Last Harvest brings together poems of place, poems on religion, poems on family and friendships, and poems that rebel against the passing of the years. [...] enough however here for mysteries, times to get lost on, found again, a different beauty, wilder, spread, bare and always the past put there in stone to stay "Guest has a way of making so much of what he writes read as though it is a stream of consciousness, fresh and idiosyncratic. He is an observer, a reporter who allows the reader the space to interpret - nothing is crammed down the throat - it can simply be read or, for the more adventurous, delved into to uncover the layers of meaning." -John Mingay, (Stride, on Some Times) "The publication of Harry Guest's Collected Poems (A Puzzling Harvest, 2002) was something of a revelation ... [It] revealed that he had gone on developing, experimenting with forms, shunning popularity, performing very little, but continuing to search - in civilised cadences, with wit and genial authority - for a moral and spiritual centre." -John Greening (Times Literary Supplement)
