Abstract
 
Description
This work is a Poetry Book Society recommendation. Elegant, interesting, fluent, funny and wise, Tim Dooley's new collection "Keeping Time" brings together lyrics and fragmentary narratives, the remembered and the imagined, in poems whose every line seems balanced as if with a spirit level. In a special issue of Agenda on 'The State of Poetry', Dooley wrote 'the condition of poetry isn't soliloquy but colloquy, a conversation that's been going on before the poem starts, and is capable of being joined and continued by others'. "Keeping Time" reflects this plural, provisional vision. New vocabularies of social and technological change cohabit with after-images of traditional literary forms. Key public events of recent years are explored alongside recurring timeless themes. First and third person pieces accompany narratives whose protagonists slip slyly from one poem to another. This is a poetry of light and movement that captures the reader's attention in unexpected ways. - from Amzon
