Golden Line 3 (Triptych)

The poetry of Fabian Miller’s images, as of the tradition from which he comes, draws its lifeblood not from things growing, nor as they are dead, but as they are, perhaps half-erotically, unmade. And so it is the suggestion, the half-said thing, the half-known place which turns out to be more gripping than the flatly said, the blankly known and the clearly aligned.

 

This molten margin has been a constant in the English mind, from the great Anglo-Saxon poems of disintegration and ruin, to Sir Thomas Malory’s Morte Darthur where love and death dance through an imagined and fading world, to Tennyson and TS Eliot: all of them find a deep, rich and melancholy music in places that are dissolving as you watch.

 

The Colour of Time by Garry Fabian Miller, from the essay ‘The Majesty of Darkness’ by Adam Nicolson.

Black Dog, London 2010.
