Names of the Sea Trout

Names of the Sea Trout

by Tom Rawling

This is Tom Rawling's last published collection of poems, and the first to be published after a break of nearly ten years. Drawing on his childhood in Cumberland, his passion for trout-fishing and his relationship with his wife, he creates in these poems images that are full of resonances of a bygone era yet are sharp, immediate and brilliantly luminous. This last collection of Tom Rawling's firmly locates him as a fine pastoral poet.

If you only buy one book of poetry a year, The Names of the Sea Trout would be an excellent choice.

Tony Charles, Odyssey

This is a careful collection and the poems are notable for their combination of precision and easy movement.

Jim Burns, Ambit
