Eternity To Season

Eternity To Season


“Eternity to Season (Guyana, 1954), Harris’s best known and most important collection of poems, is a cyclic work that relates his theme of the necessary coexistence of two kinds of Being: temporal (season) and timeless (eternity). The work is divided into ‘poems of separation and reunion’ , and the general effects is of an organic, pulsing energy-like the expansion and contraction of beating heart - which suggests the rhythm of human life and the natural cycles of death/rebirth, day/night, drought/flood etc.
