Seeing the world as a journey from darkness to light, Robin Skelton brings us here, after a long, often halting journey through poetry, ritual, and magic, to a unified view of the world. In these last poems completed shortly before his death in 1997, he finishes the journey he had begun over seven decades earlier: he creates his birth.
