'The Momentary Clock' is Peter Hague's fifth book of outstanding poetry. Once again, he takes full control of the whole canopy that his work becomes - each book a soul-searching work of art that reveals another side of this talented indie author. His various books could be described popularly as concept albums in poetry, but there is much more to it than that - they are more like a rigorous test of broad faith or an aerial of extended thought, always tuned into the rich plethora of common simplicity that is caught in the eye and the mind of living. They become relentless pictures of experience and inspiration; there is also an occasional sense of good humour at work.
As usual, there is no leaning toward any political association or religious following, yet thoughts on all these important human tendencies continue to be observed and flow through his work. Sometimes it is a genuine search for truth and understanding and other times a careful examination of the inherent wrongs that dogmatic or idealistic thinking can lead the human condition to embrace. Many of his important observations are illustrated through personal narratives.
