Moonstone Silhouettes

moonstonesilhouettesby R J Dent

Moonstone Silhouettes is the debut poetry collection by poet, novelist and translator R J Dent. It offers the reader a selection of strange characters and surreal landscapes. It also contains elegies for lost friends and poems in praise of literary influences, as well as modern translations of French and ancient Greek poems.

Underlying this collection of intense, vibrant and evocative poems is a poetic vision that transforms the subject matter into a celebration of the ethereal and the mystical.
