Penumbra is a second collection of poetry by author and actor Tim Dalgleish. As you read it feels like you are walking through a large mysterious room and picking up random objects (the poems). The room is crowded with all kinds of things and like an old fashioned museum or cabinet of curiosities one makes strange and unexpected connections. Poems about literary heroes George Orwell, Pablo Neruda, Fernando Pessoa, appear next to poems on Love, Memory, Murder and all manner of emotions.
