“There is a war that rages inside every heart —
A battle between the light and the dark.”
– The Battle.
This conflict is the thread that weaves the poems in Phillip Mellor’s ninth collection of poetry together. From the protagonist in the opening poem Main Event refusing to “take a knee”, to the title poem that closes the book, the poet takes us on a journey into the human heart and mind and asks, if we leave love behind us, what steps in to take its place?
Thoroughly modern, yet rooted in ancient ideals and metaphors, The Unaccompanied is a master work of emotional and spiritual exploration from a poet at the zenith of his powers.
“His writing is sublime”
