Douglas Scotney Comments

A prolific poet who is transforming himself in ideas and forms. Not one for the long poem, he keeps to shorter poems that make the reader really think about the meaning. Has a deep knowledge of cricket and writes very good poems about the sport, but not too many. In fact, Doug has a wide and comprehensive number of topics to write about.

Douglas is living up to his title 'Dazzling Hope'. He is broadening his technique to include allusions to well known poets like Coleridge, then offering a linguistic analysis of a stanza. His meaning is becoming more transparent, less opaque.

Doug keeps challenging the reader to work out the meanings of his cryptic, indirect poems. He has humour, irony, all the qualities of an entertaining poet, one who could give readings of his own poems with success.
