Soul Songs places the poet and the reader very much in the moment at this particular point in history.
But Beville understands that the present, and therefore any potential future, is shaped by what went on before, and for this reason memory plays a major part in how the poet addresses the current state of affairs, both private and public.
Whether the mood is contemplative, yearning, hopeful or humorous the poet fixes a clear eye on his subject and brings a finely honed measure to his craft.
He is at home in the natural world as much as in the world of politics and social affairs. He has a keen eye for image and his ear is attuned to the rhythms of language.
