FLYER is a lyrical work about the vicissitudes of affection and desire. Set against a background of sea and islands, it portrays the complexity of human love. Classically formulated, the poems represent levels of metaphor which are only available to a passionate condition: metaphors that reach far beyond a worldly situation. Both experience and ideals and merged in the imagery of the book, supplying the poetry with a formal transparence of great richness. Flyer draws its style from preliterate traditions of both East and West and offers the reader a glimpse out of time.
