For me poetry always seemed like something that other people were in to but not something that was accessible to me. A friend of mine had read King Alfred’s Jewel and was pretty insistent I should as well so eventually I relented and bought a copy. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to get into and easy to understand. The photography provides a nice counterpoint and I found myself quite wrapped up in the verse. I’d even go as far as to say I might even go on to read more poetry, but I’ll definitely read more by David Hamilton.

As someone who is not a great reader of poetry, too many memories of difficult language at school, I was unsure about David Hamilton's offering 'King Alfred's Jewel'. But, there was no difficulty for me here. The lanuage was simple, yet effective, making the poetry easy to read and easy to enjoy. You will get swept up in the journey that feels like it is being read to you, it is so effortless. A must read for any poetry and photography fan.

King Alfred’s Jewel, at least in the first poem, is a train of consciousness type of poem that I found incredibly moving and involving. But all of the poems, despite being based around outlaw legend, have that metaphoric feel to them that can be associated with our own journeys and struggles throughout our lives. The language used is both simplistic and simultaneously beautiful in description and verse. A short but terribly moving book that I for one will be going back and reading again.
