Idols established Stephen Romer as a poet of tempering wit, philosophicaleloquence, and emotional candour. This long-awaited second volume develops manyof the same themes, but the scope is considerably broadened.'Plato's Ladder' is an emblem of aspiration, and many of the poems explore thattheme, or compulsion, as it is experienced in art, but also in the less serenehistories of personal relationships. The recurrent shocks and consolations oftime and memory are continually recorded in an attempt to make sense of them.The poet's approach and location vary from the boldly direct to the ironicretrospect.
