The Weft is available (for less than the price of a pint!) from Amazon in paperback and Kindle e-book formats. If you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber The Weft is free! The poems are mostly in modern English, apart from one or two in colloquial Scots.
In style, Dave McClure is a New Formalist, meaning that he employs several classic forms while avoiding archaic 'poetic' diction. This collection contains sonnets, roundels, sestinas, terzanelles, Sapphics and more. There is a wide variety of mood, tone and subject matter, with several light verse offerings intermixed with the more serious pieces.
