Figuring the death of the author’s wife and other friends, and his mother’s stroke, Dusk concerns mortality, human connection and our often problematic relationship with the natural world. 
Matthew Barton, who is the author of four previous collections of poetry, teaches poetry on Oxford University’s Diploma in Creative Writing and the Oxford summer schools. He is co-editor of the poetry magazine, Raceme.
 ‘A honed-down art that makes each word count… a remarkable felicity of phrasing that takes one by surprise.’ – Roger Caldwell reviewing Family Tree in London Grip. 
‘These are sensitive, thoughtful and well-crafted poems. Read them for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.’ – Bob Horne in The High Window. 
‘Barton’s translations (of Rilke’s Duino Elegies) are a good starting-point for those who don’t know German and wish to discover a major European poet through his major work. I don’t see how it could have been done better.’ – Merryn Williams, London Grip.
