The white dust rises on summer roads- the black leaves of autumn await. The magisters of literature sense the twilight steal upon them- and even young dreamers see shadows upon their path. Some say they are in the last days of Europe. It is certain the known world is shimmering on the brink. And at dusk, things change . . .Mark Valentine’s At Dusk is a homage to the vanquished and lost voices of the poets of interwar Europe, in a powerful form of his own.ContentsI.
