Romer's second collection of poems explores the theme of aspiration, or compulsion, as it is experienced in art, but also in the less serene histories of personal relationships. There are also poems deriving from the author's stay in Poland during the momentous year of 1989-1990.
Idols established Stephen Romer as a poet of tempering wit, philosophical eloquence, and emotional candour. This long-awaited second volume develops many of the same themes, but the scope is considerably broadened.
