PAPERBACK ISBN: 9780645733600 314pp 234x153mm
This collection of poems and sketches will take you on an intricate, winding journey focusing on society, environment, science, politics, religion and many other, often poignant, aspects of life.
These poems contain critique, commentary, lots of humour, pathos, absurdity and a degree of red alert. They are more raised eyebrow than highbrow, a mix which may well appeal to people who don’t often read poetry. Tony Doyle’s poetic styles vary and references to blindness are sprinkled throughout the book.
These poems will entertain, challenge, amuse and perhaps even shock you. Some of them take a critical look at modern life, recent cultural changes and possible future scenarios. The widening gap between rich and poor is referred to in several poems. The author considers it to be a dangerous and undealt with phenomenon of the modern era. Other poems will cheer you up with a bit of irreverent and quirky humour.
In the early days of Covid Tony Doyle decided to try his hand at writing poetry. In this collection of poems, he opens up vistas and visions into the world he perceives and experiences with no eyesight but plenty of insight. Please join Tony Doyle on this engaging and often humorous journey.
