Preston Poet Releases a New Collection of Work That Best Describes Our World Now
Feb, 15 2021
Once our work is done at a respectful age, many people decide to wind-down, live abroad and enjoy their grandchildren. Others though prefer to try new things or to invest considerable time in a hobbie they enjoyed whilst working but now they have more time they can pursue it more seriously.
Preston based Terry Quinn’s former role was an NHS Medical Engineer. Since his retirement he’s been grafting hard on his literary works in the form of poetry.
He has successfully published them in a variety of means, including:-
- UK magazines and anthologies
- On Guernsey bus
He is also actively involved with Preston Poets and Damson Poets
Poetry in general has been on the increase since the start of the pandemic for people to vent their frustration and despair in a written context.
It seems appropriate then for Terry to release a new collection of poems examining the effects and aftermath of a potential third world war.
‘Notes on the Cause of the Third World War by JC Dunne reflects on the work of a fictitious historian who suddenly realises that he’s unable to use traditional academic disciplines to explain what has led to the world breaking down.
Terry spent some time researching the material to able to compile the book and his vivid imagination helped the work come to life.
He spoke recently about the vision and intent he had for the collection of poems,
“ I wanted to write a sequence of poems that drew together the concerns I feel about our world now. I felt this could be best achieved through he voice of a single character who could blend today’s facts and tomorrow’s fictions with objective authority but touches of his own humanity”.
Terry’s new collection of work is available to buy online through waterstones:- https://www.waterstones.com/book/notes-on-the-causes-of-the-third-world-war-by-j-c-dunne/terry-quinn/9781912876433
