This author was recommended to me by a fellow-writer.
I am not a great fan of poetry in general but R. L. Stephenson, Rupert Brooke, Sir Walter Scott, Henry Reed are a few who

In this collection, I was constantly reminded of Lewis Carroll. Not a bad thing at all. A ‘Beachcomber’s Tale’ pleased me in
I shall be reading other of Barnaby Wilde’s works (I am now curious to know how he arrived at his pseudonym?), not just his
poetry, so it is safe to assume that I too recommend this author!
