Everything Is Now is a new poetry collection by the British poet Christopher Dadson.

In this collection Christopher explores old poetic forms through a contemporary lens, presenting the reader with odes, sonnets and dramatic monologues that tackle the grind, the suffering, and the joys of daily life.

The ‘Odes’ touch on classic themes of mortality, work, friendship, memory, loss, and art, as relevant today as they were to Horace, and through a variety of metre and rhyme recall poems by the Romantics, even if the modern-day settings of a beach holiday or a drive at night place it firmly in the present.

‘The Gypsy Moth Sonnets’ are a short cycle of erotic and neurotic episodes about how those enduring a sad middle age can throw away everything for fresh love, and the effects of that on the psyche. These poems are pathetically comedic yet still remain infused with passion and feeling.

Finally, the ‘Laments’ are composed of dramatic monologues from historic, mythical, and invented characters. Some of these poems are comical and some are about loss, but throughout they are permeated with death.

Christopher Dadson is a British poet and playwright. He was born in 1982 in Belfast and received degrees in English and Latin American Studies from Cambridge and London universities respectively. He currently lives with his wife and son in London, where he works full time in the charity sector and writes poetry and plays in his spare time.
