Knots and branches
Stewart Carswell’s intriguing poetry takes the reader on a mysterious journey through a world influenced by the forests and trees of our natural landscape. The poems’ concise descriptions of nature are balanced by an acute awareness of our emotional fragility. A darkly satisfying debut.
Although set for the most part in the enclosed landscapes of his native Forest of Dean, Stewart Carswell’s precise and surprising poems travel at the speed of light to explore the limits of love, loss, and loyalty.
