Whereas some say a Cloud is in his Head, — , Preface to Part Two of the Pilgrim’s Progress
That doth but shew how Wisdom’s covered
With its own mantles: And to stir the mind
To a search after what it fain would find,
Things that seem to be hid in words obscure,
Do but the Godly mind the more alure;
To study what those Sayings should contain,
That speak to us in such a Cloudy strain.
A. Robert Lee
has just published another volume of poetry:
Imaginarium: Sightings, Galleries, Sightlines
This is his latest collection of poetry and is published by 2Leaf Press.
From the publisher’s website:
The term “imaginarium” refers to a “place” devoted to stimulating and cultivating the imagination, towards scientific, artistic, commercial, recreational, or a spiritual end. In this collection, Lee explores two connecting keynotes: imagination and sight that explores the way we go about imagining as much as seeing reality. Lee goes about this using an ekphrastic approach by commemorating a dozen or so celebrated visual artists and their works, among them J.M.W. Turner and Frida Kahlo. He extends the usual meaning of the term to include vantage-points like a French archeological cave, and then expertly frames a run of personal encounters within the heights and widths of buildings and landscapes.
