Description

Time touches everything, and in doing so changes everything. The Arrow of Time examines the challenges, transformations and surprises wrought by change, and celebrates the ways we attempt to measure our lives against this most invisible of concepts. From John Constable's home at East Bergholt to the shattered streets of Nanking, China, in 1937, Meyer offers a fresh and lyrically commanding statement of the impact of time, death and love have on our determination to hold on to life. For Meyer, time is not merely a matter of minutes, days, or years, but the process of alteration and change that inhabits all things. In his poetry Meyer evokes how the introduction of a random element - love, beauty, or desire - changes the flow of time, how it can stand still at moments, and how we gain small victories by celebrating what we live for.
