About this product
- DescriptionAn Irish monk watching the Black Death edging towards him; a priest at Delphi lamenting the passing of an era; an Assyrian extispicist receiving more inspiration than is good for him - these are some of the voices in James Harpur's third collection. Drawing on legend, myth and sacred traditions, his poems explore universal forces - seen and unseen, personal and cosmic - shaping people's destinies, and the signs by which their patterns are revealed. These central issues coalesce in Dies Irae , a long poem in which a Dark Age churchman tries to reconcile his mission to save souls in a sinking world with his own sickness, both physical and spiritual.
- Author BiographyJames Harpur has published two previous collections, 'A Vision of Comets' and 'The Monk's Dream'. He was born in 1956 of Irish-British parents and works as a freelance writer. He has received an Eric Gregory Award, bursaries from the Arts Council and the Society of Authors, and a Year of the Artist award to be poet in residence at Exeter Cathedral in 2001. He was also winner of the 1995 National Poetry Competition.
