Blue Rivers by Douglas Reid Skinner
01 Sep 2011
Blue Rivers is Douglas Reid Skinner’s fifth collection. The poems cover a wide range of subjects, from love, childhood and the death of parents to fellow writers, catastrophe and the nature of memory, illness, time, loneliness, language, thought and meaning. At the same time, they explore the process of writing itself, viewed from different angles and seen through a range of prisms; each poem is both what it is about and also a thesis on what poetry is, how it means, and how poetry talks back into the writer.
