Summary
A children's game in an overgrown garden is the first hint of a troubling presence in the old house 'Eldershaw'. But is the haunting a memory of the past inscribed in the stonework, or a discord the occupants have brought with them? A children's game in an overgrown garden is the first hint of a troubling presence in the old house 'Eldershaw'. But is the haunting a memory of the past inscribed in the stonework or a discord the occupants have brought with them? Stephen Edgar's compelling new collection comprises three interlinked narrative poems ranging forwards and backwards in time from WW II to the present. Drawing on personal experience, reimagined and transformed through the lens of fiction, they enact those charged episodes which shape and scar the lives of several characters. From the dim rooms of 'Eldershaw' to the recollected infernos of war, to the uncanny waters of a seaside pool, these narratives are moving and haunting. The book is completed by sixteen shorter lyrics in Edgar's more characteristic manner, some glancing at or directly treating themes from the narratives
