I’m relieved to find such things are there, in spite of hunger and carnageunder the same moon, and my place in their terrible chain; glad that my mother’s hands, after long years of sustaining us all, will place on her table, once again, her annual offerings at tomorrow’s feast. From Late Night Christmas ShoppingTomorrow’s Feast is Stevenson’s third poetry collection and reflects the challenges of today’s world. At the forefront of the poet’s consciousness here is the legacy faced by the next generation.
In many ways, as the title implies, the book is a tribute to youth. Its scope is wide and deep, profoundly personal as well as political, employing a range of poetic forms, including a virtuosic libretto in verse, a contemporary retelling of Coleridge’s epic poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner set during the refugee crisis.
