These poems combine an enthusiasm for the traditional pleasures of verse with a bold willingness to experiment. The lines, often carefully nuanced for the ear, seek a highly individual balance between pain and pathos, quirky humour and wry commentary.
Prince is at ease with various ways of making poetry - mining the nuances of his own psyche or sharing observations of people he has known. Reminiscent of the metaphysical poets, the work is beautiful, thoughtful, and resonates at many levels.
