I’ve been looking forward to the publication of the late, great Clive James’ new book today.
The Fire of Joy – Roughly Eighty Poems To Get By Heart And Say Aloud is, as anticipated, already a joy … ‘To the next generation – “The race of men / Is like the generations of the leaves – / They fall in autumn to return in spring.” – Homer’
There’s feu de joie in colour all around me today – and it’s always good to set eyes upon a rainbow.
Creativity is the great mystery. Anyone can be destructive, but the capacity to build something will go on being the great human surprise
This collection will encourage any reader to ‘build something’ – and be surprised!
