His work stretches the fabric of form and language in an attempt to come to grips with the despoliation of our forests, woods and countryside. The language of forestry and of agriculture, of botany and arboriculture is plundered in order to give the poems the tools they need to express their defiance. This collection consists of three long sequences that mix prose with poetry: Leaves of Field, Open Woods and Moving Woods.
