Eschatological, Peter Reading, 1996
Publisher: Bloodaxe (included in Collected Poems 2: Poems 1985-1996)
In her indispensable book, Reading Peter Reading, Isabel Martin writes, “Eschatological as a title is a distillation of the book’s agenda: scatology, classicism, and the contemplation of three of the Last Four Things: Death, Judgement, and Hell. [The book] shows Reading casting last glances over his shoulder and erecting a pyre of all the images of ‘Last Things’ he happens to see on earth.”
