Bale Fire Paperback / softback
by Jim Carruth
Bale Fire is a book in three cycles. The first explores the darker side of communities in decline.
The middle is a transposition of elements and characters of the Odyssey to a Scottish hill farm and its neighbours.
The final part looks at the idea of harvest and loss. Jim Carruth offers here both a celebration and an elegy.
The poems in this collection address the themes of our time: war, friendship, honesty, violence, humanity and love.
