The Lost Shadow of Things is Harry Matthews' fifth poetry collection. These poems are informed by the poet's understanding of impermanence, and how the eternal expresses itself in us and through what surrounds us. His poems affirm an acceptance of life leading to an expansion of being, and in his keen sensitivity to the natural world articulates a vision of deep ecology.
