This book, a collection of 55 poems by the British scientist, natural historian and poet Hugh David Loxdale, originally published in 1988, is a wide-ranging celebration of nature in poetry. It has now been republished as a new edition and with a colourful front cover by Brambleby Books. The Eternal Quest concerns the beauty and dynamics of the natural world, its persistence and fragility. Most poems are on natural history themes, - the seasons, weather, plants and animals, although some cover philosophical perceptions of life and time, including human love. Thus ultimately, even whilst the seasons come and go, all of nature attempts to fulfil its destiny, whatever this may be molecular, genetic, evolutionary, romantic or spiritual, and is surely engaged in an eternal quest of sorts.
