In this first collection of his poetry, David M Garnett observes the forms of nature in their environments. Many of the poems become hymns to creatures from recently receding landscapes. He depicts relationships not only among people but also with animate and inanimate objects. This also makes the collection confessional in the characteristic British mode.
Roads Stretch is very much a poetry of journey – physical, emotional and mystical.
