Ian Pople recognises that the process of writing is, in its own terms, an actual act of creation. He examines how this act of creation crosses the boundaries between the real and the unreal, and how it is possible to make something that not only reflects life but also becomes part of the human condition. This sequence of poems is a gentle and understated questioning of one’s comprehension of the real world.

"Like Sean O'Brien, Pople often seems a poet of cumulative effect, rather than the isolated image. His images are normally simply-seen and unembellished, and when juxtaposed, can have surprising and illuminating effects."
