THE MODERN DEATH
Free Verse by John O’Loughlin
Which can be previewed via the link beneath the following Centretruths editorial:–
Originally dating from 1984, this collection of forty-four poems by John O’Loughlin continues in the free-verse style of Spiritual Intimations (1983), albeit the verse is systematically prevented from degenerating into prose through the application of a methodological consistency which continues to favour the definite/indefinite article at the expense of lesser words. More significant of this collection is its greater concern with a general approach to metaphysics, or subatomic theories, which, though far from definitive, enabled Mr O’Loughlin to dig beneath the surface of his themes to what he hoped would be their spiritual or emotional depths. In retrospect, one can see how much ground he still had to cover – or perhaps one should say ‘unearth’? – in order to arrive at the Truth, which is to say, at a well-nigh definitive grasp of metaphysics. But this was still a significant stage in his progress as a metaphysician, even if it was fated to take a poetic turn. – A Centretruths editorial.
