Plain And Purl

Alistair Stewart

Plain and Purl, cinematic in its imagery, psalm-like

in its renditions of pain, loss and renewal, carves a

unique path through contemporary poetic trends. 

In close-up, tightly crafted poems Alistair Stewart’s

collection begins in the silence of personal tragedy

and emanates outward in epic sequence around

motifs of ash, sky, fatherhood and grief. 

It retains the widely acclaimed style of the verse

narrative Frankston 281, pointing a documentary

lens with intimate effect.

Plain and Purl is a testament of love and a hard-

eyed anitdote to the sleek inducements of

contemporary life. 

Perfect bound softcover book with jacket flaps.

90 pages. 19.7cm x 13cm.
