The theme in this chapbook, ‘A Spoon of Honey’, is about discovering. From the first poem, A Spoon of Honey, where the author discovers a ‘truth’, to the final poem, Ithaca From a Ferry, where the author realizes that he doesn’t need to go to the island of Ithaca, this collection of poems reveals a newfound sense of self.
'The lyric, elegant poems in 'A Spoon of Honey' question what we're really looking for when we set out seeking 'the truth'. Ion Corcos' quest yields subtleties: winter nests, trees hung with bitter oranges, night rain and wild sunflowers. It offers countless imaginative possibilities.'
~ Helen Mort, Poet
