The Echoing Coastline
Published by Agenda Editions
Byron Beynon’s seventh eclectic and engaging collection explores the changing bond that binds humankind and the natural world. Thoughtful and observant, humane and cosmopolitan, the poems are concerned first with Wales, then look beyond the valleys of home to a wider world.
“Beynon writes strange, surprising poems. His landscapes are similarly intense, enjoying some memorable, original images…”
