Read full description of the books View Points and Points of View: A 'Phoetry Book' from Cornwall:This is described as a Phoetry Book, and Phoetry is defined as a fusion of Poetry and Photography. Both Clive Blake, the poet, and Chris Robbins, the photographer, grew up on Cornish family farms. Their love of Cornwall and the natural environment is self-evident in both the poems and the images. Both have also had to cope with disabilities, but this seems to intensify their creativity rather than hinder it. Adrian Blake, the graphic designer, has used his design skills to sympathetically and very effectively pull the whole thing together. This has ensured that the whole book has a very contemporary and pleasing feel to it. The subject matter is wide and varied, and is by no means limited to Cornwall's borders. Emotions are stretched in all directions, but the Cornish dry-wit, humour and general sense of fun is never far away. Clive's poetry has been described as user-friendly and he has been described as a peoples-poet, since his poetry is very easy to read and understand. Despite this he still manages to convey a very powerful and compelling message. This book does not allow normal conventions to restrict it. The book starts with The End, allows some of its text to slope at gravity defying angles and with the poem Happiless, boasts the shortest published poem in the world. Packed with sixty poems accompanied by sixty stunning images, everyone who reads it seems to have their own particular favourites. This is a book which really does have something for everyone. You can purchase this book via www.emuhouse.co.uk or from a growing list of retailers, as detailed on the emuhouse website. Most people are very surprised at the books very competitive pricing. This book has been deliberately priced to make a quality gift, at a very affordable price.
Read information about the authorMy middle name is Arthur, which obviously must give me some kind of legitimate hereditary claim over King Arthur's castle at Tintagel. Unfortunately, Tintagel Castle might need a bit of restoration work before I can move in! I was named Clive Rowse at birth, since my father was A.R.J. Rowse. My mother, Lavinia Joan, resumed her maiden name of Blake after her marriage to my Father ended. At the same time, in my mid twenties, I changed my surname from Rowse to Blake. I was brought up on the Blake family farm, Little Skewes, St. Wenn, near Wadebridge, Cornwall. The village of St. Wenn is very small, but the parish of St. Wenn is very large. The parish of St. Wenn contains some idylic countryside, was five miles from the nearest town and was a great place to live when growing up. I shared my childhood with my sister Susan, who married Roger Blewett and now lives in idylic countryside at Marhamchurch, near Bude. The Blakes had farmed Little Skewes Farm for something like eight generations. Rowse is also a very old Cornish family name. Both the surnames, Blake and Rowse, provoke very strong literary connotations, so perhaps it was inevitable that I should put pen to paper in a serious way at some stage of my life. During my working life I've both farmed and been involved in administative work, but what I love doing most is writing and entertaining people. I've acted with many amateur dramatic groups, taken part in some film extra work and written a play and a pantomine. I perform my own poetry and co-present a Cornwall Hospital Broadcast Network show with my lovely wife Stephanie. I have two children, Adrian and Amy and two step-daughters, Rebecca and Lucy. Although I've had poems published in more than sixty book anthologies and in many newspapers and magazines, the publication of my book View Points and Points of View in February 2009 is, I feel, my greatest achievement to date. The sequel is already on its way and of course after a title like View Points and Points of View , the sequel's title could obviously only be one thing ... View Points and Points of View Too ! I am very happily married to Stephanie and we now live in Newquay. I am only too pleased to be able to soak up the inspirational coastal scenery around us and occassionally do a bit of body boarding.
