Poetry Noir
Tales from a Dark Future
by David Hamilton

A book of original poetry with a unique difference
Set in a dystopian future with realistic figures
Told by the author and characters in shorter poems and sonnets


This is a book of dark tales from an oppressive, dystopian future. It is original poetry with life-like figures battling the oppressive and being forcibly cloned, modified and being turned into Cyborgs in a recreation centre where people are captured or conned into going.

“When night cloaked the world, I was dreaming about the land which No one reaches but through a dark abbey, and saw the light of Odin’s Wand, he whispered me to follow along an amaranthine alley through Forests, in a most cold place where few can enter its dim doors and halls.”

Poetry Noir will appeal to fans of dystopian poetry, as well as readers that have enjoyed David’s previous works, Storyteller (Matador, 2017), King Alfred’s Jewel (Matador, 2014) and Concept Poems (Matador, 2016).

King Alfred's Jewel: Poetry of the Imagination and Imaginative Poetry (Troubador) is David Hamilton's first book of poetry and photography but there are more planned. poetry has been neglected by the popular critics and booksellers but there is a groundswell of eager readers turning to it again.
Mr. Hamilton has two books of essays published. Culture Wars: To Discipline the Devil's Regions (Createspace)is criticism of art, architecture and drama. Some Literary Essays: Comments and Insights (Booklocker)is as the title suggests a collection of essays on literary subjects reviewing fairly George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, ideological playwrights, Middlemarch and reality, how Shakespeare created depth of meaning and some interesting literary genres like Verse satire and the work of Metaphysicals and Cavaliers.
