On Quarry Beach is Robert’s 2nd collection of poetry, covering the years 2008 – 2013. The poems are eclectic in both subject and style, the latter ranging from the lofty sonnet through to the delicate haiku. Robert continues to draw his influences at random from what he sees as life’s rich tapestry.
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.
