Book Description:
This fantastic adventure into the realms of the imagination is a superb example of the incomparable skill of poet Walter de la Mare. In this collection the poet explores the intersection of reality and fantasy within the context of an earth-centeredness that extends far beyond our knowing present - an exploration garnered from dreams, from mindful awakening, indeed from ephemeral ventures into the hitherto unknown.

In this series of related but diverse poems de la Mare appeals to our thoughtful consideration of his work based not solely on its subject matter but from an element of the supernatural interwoven within each verse. The poet's work thus both unites and at times divides our previously familiar concepts and long-held beliefs with a component of the mystical progression of life itself as we each venture along a path in some ways familiar yet in other ways oddly disjointed and exotic.

Prepare to be amazed at the journey on which Walter de la Mare, this exceptional poet, is about to take us. Prepare to depart on an adventure to the realms of this master poet's Sunken Garden, a "green and darkling spot" where perhaps "a distant dreamer dreams." Prepare to share in those universal reveries of prescience that bring wonder and amazement to us all. - Summary by Bruce Kachuk
