Clive Wilmer's last collection "The Falls", wrote "Jem Poster in PN Review", 'offers beguiling glimpses of a world in which the earthly and the heavenly manifest their independence'. This is equally true of "The Mystery of Things", which as the title implies, is as much concerned with things as it is with their mystery. In the tradition of mystical literature, the sacred is seen in terms of the erotic and the erotic furnishes glimpses of the transcendent. Central to the book is the intuition that pain and fear are fundamental to the valuation of life. Wilmer's poems, as John Greening wrote in the TLS, are seamlessly constructed' and his style is 'cool, formal, crisp and energetic'. In this collection, published in his 62nd year, his forms are more forcefully compressed than ever.
