Bartok in Winter by Paul Ilechko

This collection does not have a specific theme, other than the poems are intended to be lyrical and strongly image driven. The author, Paul Ilechko, does have certain recurring themes in his work, in that he frequently refers to issues related to aging, a sense of place, and the arts. However, he also thinks that the story of the poet will evolve from his work over time, and that is sufficient. 


Paul Ilechko has always lived by a river, although he sometimes dreams of forests and mountains. He was born and raised in the north of England, but currently lives in Lambertville, NJ with his girlfriend and a cat. Paul has had poetry accepted/published recently by Oberon Magazine, Dash Literary Journal, Stickman Review, MockingHeart Review and Saint Katherine Review, among others. 

32 pages, 27 poems
