The Ruins of Time, Paperback / softback Book

The Ruins of Time Paperback / softback

Edited by Anthony Thwaite

Part of the Poetry of Place series


A collection of poetry dedicated to the broken gate of a rocky citadel, the ivy-clad ruins of a Gothic tower, tottering temple columns haunted only by owls, and the jungle-entombed traces of a vast trading city - the physical icons of a romantic engagement with the past.

They have always fuelled our passion for travel and they have always provoked the poets, by the secrets that they guard, the mute lessons they preach, and the silent warnings they offer.
