Drawing in Ash

Overview

Drawing in Ash, is prize-winning poet Will Stone's second collection. These compelling poems tackle subjects from war and genocide to the Roman ruins of Provence. Stone leads us on a visionary exploration of mankind's fragility and destructive power, through unpalatable historical realities which our current society, despite its vast intellectual inheritance, still straggles to assimilate.

Overview

Drawing in Ash, is prize-winning poet Will Stone's second collection. These compelling poems tackle subjects from war and genocide to the Roman ruins of Provence. Stone leads us on a visionary exploration of mankind's fragility and destructive power, through unpalatable historical realities which our current society, despite its vast intellectual inheritance, still straggles to assimilate. This is a world where ancient ruins emerge from the earth like the stubborn backbones of some pre-historic creature, exuding peculiar poetic significance for us today.

These poems come from a real existential engagement and follow the old dictum that a poet must respond to his time, how things are now, whilst not letting history off the hook.
