That Lone Ship, Paperback / softback Book

That Lone Ship Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


From the very first page of this varied and engaging debut collection, Rhys Owain Williams invites his readers to pause.

Here is a poet who is working things out, taking time to contemplate what it means to grow older with each passing day.

The poems in That Lone Ship are often caught between two places - inhabiting the quiet spaces between childhood and adulthood, lust and love, heartbreak and new beginnings, life and death. An acute observer, Williams writes with a sharp-eyed, questing intelligence.

The future has as large a presence in this collection as the past.

Restrained and elegantly-crafted, the poems in That Lone Ship resonate beyond the page, finding their footing between the known and the unknown, the said and the unsaid.
