On Quarry Beach
by Robert Jaggs-Fowler

Prize-winning poet Robert Jaggs-Fowler returns with his second collection of poetry, covering the years 2008-2013. The collection draws from life’s rich tapestry, capturing and distilling moments, thoughts and experiences. Within the book the reader finds a particular appreciation of travel, art, nature and philosophy.

Ranging in style from the lofty sonnet to the delicate haiku, this collection covers a range of eclectic subjects. Robert takes inspiration from places he has visited, as well as works of art that he has seen, to inform and inspire his poetry, which is simultaneously personal and universally recognisable. On Quarry Beach also contains metaphysical overtones and a smattering of humour to entertain readers.

This collection also contains a number of poems that have previously received recognition with ‘My Neighbours Lawn’ winning the Fathom Prize for Poetry in 2010 and ‘Haiku from the Caribbean’ shortlisted in Writing Magazine’s Sea Poetry Competition.

Inspired by the work of Ted Hughes, Rudyard Kipling and Philip Larkin, On Quarry Beach is Robert’s second collection of original poems following the success of A Journey With Time (Lulu 2008). This second collection will appeal to a wide readership, especially to fans of poetry and those that have read and enjoyed Robert’s previous work.

Other books by Robert Jaggs-Fowler:

A Journey with Time
ISBN-13: 978-1409228448
Lulu (2008)

Robert's first collection of poetry; the subject matter drawing on his love of nature, books and music, as well as exploring the more intense emotions of love and loss. At times amusing, often poignant, A Journey with Time reveals the inner workings of a sensitive human being who is in touch with far more than just life’s daily toil.

The Law and Medicine: Friend or Nemesis?
ISBN-13: 978-1908911995
Radcliffe (2013)

The work draws together a rich tapestry of sources across many different disciplines, covering the relationship of medicine and law from ancient history to the present time. As such, it provides a valuable overview of the subject in a manner that has not been published before. It provides useful background reading to anyone interested in medico-legal medicine, as well as providing a springboard for students and writers interested in researching the field through its broad bibliography, or taking their reading to greater depths. There is no other book that considers the historic relationship between the two professions in this manner, or that draws together in one volume such a diversity of reference resources. It will be of interest to doctors and lawyers, medical and law students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, and the general reader with an interest in historical matters.
