Peter J. Maher

Author Peter J. Maherabout this book: My second collection of poetry takes its title from the epic poem The City and the Fall. This long and complex poem was the direct result of a dream translated into a poetic narrative. It is a series of visionary explorations depicting an imaginary overland journey from one city to another. It was also the first long poem I have ever written without a break, I wrote it in one exhausting and continuous twenty four hour period. The remaining poems within this collection all reflect some type of philosophical exploration of life and the search for a way forward as we move through our lives. The overall theme of 'journey' is something I wanted to emphasise in this collection. I wasn't sure if I should place the title poem at the end of the book, because long and complex poems are not easy to read, but I had to remain faithful to the vision, and as such the entire collection followed the chosen theme.
