#BlogTour The Death of the Sentence by Richard Doyle

Today it's my turn and the last day of the BlogTour The Death of the Sentence by Richard Doyle.

About the Author

Richard Doyle is an old-school SF fan who began writing seriously in 2001. He has a Diploma in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia and collaborated on a book in 2006. He has had poems published in the UK poetry magazines Orbis and Sarasvati and is a regular member of the Bristol Stanza Poetry Group. 

About the book

The death of the sentence is the debut role of the writer; the plight of the poetry pamphlet; an inventive homage; science in the novel; science fiction in the real world; prose spaceship and singular music; both fun-

Simple in style yet steeped in emotion, I recommend The death of the sentence for poetry newbs and aficionados alike -


Let's begin with the fact the title is an oxymoron. The Death of the Sentence, whereby the use of words and sentences are the tool of communication. The conduit for emotions, frustrations, thoughts and speculative leaps. 

Indeed the comparisons between the pieces are often an intentional contradictory reading experience.

It's a book of speculative poetry. Exposing inner ambitions, expectations and letting the reader glimpse more than they expected perhaps. Is Doyle at times questioning what is inside or what wants to be out there amongst us. Is it a conversation written in prose and experimental poetry?

I think it would be interesting to see what the author does next and how much depth he can ring to the table, and indeed is there a door beyond the world of this short and yet intimately poignant short experience of words.
