The Nameless Places

The Nameless Places

Author: Richard Lambert Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/07/2017

A hotel with mysterious guests, a city where the moon wanders, an abandoned seaside pavilion, are some of the places visited in this, Richard Lambert's second collection. Structured around a movement from city to sea and always alert to the emotional resonance of landscape, The Nameless Places dwells on those spaces that lie at the edge of our lives and vision, and that seem somewhere between reality and dream. The collection culminates in a sequence that follows a journey made along the course of a river from its source to its mouth. Here, an English landscape's margins are investigated - suburb, waste ground, marsh, and estuary beach. In poems that are formally various (rondeau, villanelle and sonnet) and conjuring an atmosphere of melancholy, The Nameless Places explores forgotten and neglected spaces - both of the mind and of our physical world.

Night Journey

Night Journey

Author: Richard Lambert Format: eBook Release Date: 18/06/2013

A hauntingly poetic evocation of English surrealism meeting the Movement style - so empirical wit combines with vividly rendered dreamscapes.What makes Richard Lambert rare as a poet is the unshowy integrity which percolatesthrough his poetics. While others camp things up, he keeps them calm and true. There’s noharrumphing, no ostentation, no display. Night Journey is a memorable, softly dynamic collection.— Tim Liardet One of the great pleasures of reading Richard Lambert’s poems is to find oneself in the presence of a writer who delights in surprising himself. He has the gift of being able to take small details of everyday life and assemble them into configurations that are often at once reassuringly familiar andchallengingly strange. There is also an attractive, lyrical tenderness about his way of looking at the world, kindly but firm and unsentimental, which I find particularly engaging.— John Mole
