Under the Sun takes up where Human Time (2020) left off. This new collecton contains poems on a variety of subjects and in various moods and modes. Once again, humour is mixed with sadness and free verse with formal poetry. There are delicate poems about nature and yet human concerns remain very much to the fore. Duncan Forbes captures memorable moments and also has a deep sense of time and time passing. The poems express their ideas colourfully with his characteristic verve, accomplishment, elegance, poignancy, wit and insight.

In the course of a writing life, Duncan Forbes has won numerous prizes for his work including a Gregory Award and aTLS/Blackwells Prize. His poems have been published or anthologised by Faber, Secker, Penguin, Bloodaxe and Enitharmon.
