Between Sanity & Madness


This Anthology consists of poems – or ‘verses’ as I like to call them – taken from four slim volumes and written over a period of six difficult years in my life. One of the poets I have always found most readable is Byron – particularly in his epic poems. In these he airs his innermost feeling and opinions, almost as if he were having a conversation in a room full of people. My verses, although not in any way in his league and certainly not epic, are written in a similar way. The feelings and observations are written in order to connect, sometimes with anger, sometimes with humour, and, in the final poems, in a calmer and more optimistic frame of mind. I hope those of you who read them will find something to enjoy, maybe even recognise, and to occasionally raise a smile


This is a slim volume of poems. Due to the thinness of the volume we decided to produce a clean but basic design to compliment the content but to also hold a contemporary feel of the pamphlets – the format slim volumes of poems often get printed. Green Door Design for Publishing also designed the interior (book-block).
