A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The great prehistoric stone circle at Avebury on Salisbury Plain provides the starting point and central image for a series of lyrical meditations, exploring modern man's difficult and painful search for a centre. Stone is the connecting principle, and humanity's roots are rediscovered in the modes of perception of earlier cultures.

Review:

'The central movement of the poem is a trance, in which a journey into an interior is also a journey back into childhood, into reunion with brother and sister, into the innocence before puberty, wich is also the innocence of early man' -- TLS

'These are themes very close to my own interests and it was a welcome surprise to find Avebury where I have walked among the stones so often - even found prehistoric bits sharded in mole-hill (moles are excellent excavators) - placed back meaningfully on the spiritual map' -- Charles Tomlinson
