Item description for Elves in the Wainscotting (Oxford Poets) by Joe Sheerin...
These poems reflect that the world as a whole is a puzzling and nonsensical place, but that there are always fragments here and there that can be understood. It is this suggestive, partial understanding that is the subject of the poems. While some of the events depicted are humorously bleak, there is a line of optimism running through the work, and human relation is revealed as the only antidote to despair and anger.
