Book description

Andrew Huntley’s fourth published collection of poems, From Tradition and away from Tradition, is a collection of concentrated poetic meditations on the present state of the West. We have cast off the theological, philosophical, literary and historical underpinnings of our tradition and turned away from these in an unceasing search for novelty.

Huntley, in his 70s, focuses on the rapid decline of the West since World War II, and of the 1960s he contends that this was the “predatory decade”, a “ten-year zeitgeist that undid the West”.

His poetry is written from the fixed point of tradition, using largely traditional forms and metres, from which he sees the decline of Christian civilisation.
