Description

The complete collection of John Meade Falkner's published poems, including one from his novel Moonfleet. Those who have read John Meade Falkner's novels and dipped into his poetry find themselves returning to them with pleasure, welcoming them as old, familiar friends.

The perceptive reader will find and enjoy in Falkner's poetry and novels a warmth and a strong sense of kinship with his fellow human beings, particularly those of days gone by. His sensitivity towards the people and events of the past, often brought to life through ancient buildings or particular locations, is a quality which Falkner shares with both with Hardy and the Brontës. In Falkner's case, in contrast to much of Hardy's writing, there is an overriding sense of optimism and acceptance, even as he describes and identifies with the trials and tribulations of his fellow beings. There is also but little of the extreme and amoral passion of Wuthering Heights; Falkner's tendency to balance good and bad within people, and the persistent idea that redemption is possible even in those of significantly evil persuasion, is much closer in this respect to the pervading moral atmosphere of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and of Jane Eyre.
