Robert McLean is a defiantly modernist poet who often uses traditional metres and rhyme to explore the complexities of history and selfhood. His intellectually cosmopolitan and questioning verse attempts to re-illuminate how acts of attention-by Nijinsky, Andrea del Sarto, David Esterley, Charles Fourier, John Mulgan and others-have sanctified, if only momentarily, the world with all its wrecks and wonders. Enduring Love features a generous selection of poems from his four previous collections; the sixty-two sestet tour de force 'A Graveyard by the Sea'; and more than thirty new poems, including two long sequences: 'The Passions of William Colenso' and 'A Fantasia in the Voice of D'Arcy Cresswell'.
