Stones and Stars
Paul Murray






The reissue, in a single volume, of Paul Murray's two much-admired Dedalus collections, The Absent Fountain (1992) and These Black Stars (2003).

PRE-ORDER ONLY. Published 01 March 2013

Paul Murray’s third and fourth collections of poems, The Absent Fountain (1992) and These Black Stars (2003) are still much sought after and admired: the precision and economy of the language is exemplary, its concentrated focus well suited for the task in hand. Murray’s is a mystical journey, informed by the vocabulary and symbols of the spiritual quest, and he regularly engages the reader – and indeed God – in dialogue, drawing us into an exploration of memory and desire, of dream, darkness and rebirth. The closing poem, paradoxically entitled “Beginning”, at once celebrates and challenges: “I have come through / after all. I have a new / dawn on my shoulders.”
