Andrew Hawthorne
Strange Music of Bone

Poetry. 1998. 69 pages. ISBN 0 904872 30 0. 6.95.

The title is from the first poem, 'William Barnes walks his Parish'. Imaginatively, the poet, a Dorset parson like the dialect poet Barnes, explores the bones of our ancestors and continues with an assortment of present-day characters, some rather eccentric. A magnificent final poem, 'By-Pass', for the Newbury road protesters, completes the subterranean theme running under the book.

'An energetic, varied and often original first collection which is well worth seeking out.' English

'The theme of the bones of our ancestors is hauntingly echoed throughout the collection.' New Forest Magazine

'A straightforward, direct, accomplished first collection.' PQR
