According to the Small Hours

Author: Aidan Mathews
Publisher: Yellow Jersey Press
Category: Poetry Books, Poetry By Individual Poets
Book Format: Paperback

In this, his first collection of poems in fifteen years, Aidan Matthews brings together the scared and the profane, playful and profound, the iconic and the everyday - illuminating the variousness and commonality of human experience. These poems wear their erudition lightly- dazzling us with their fresh observations, the strangely intimate details ('mice among the breadcrumbs of the Last Supper') and a fluid, metaphysical wit that can link a saint's matyrdom to a Sunday roast. Mercurial, passionate and always surprising, According to the Small Hours is a triumphant return to the form.
