Description A collection of poems reflecting the paradoxical elements of existence, "Rare Frequencies" attempts to challenge orthodox explanations of life experiences. It demonstrates the power of words to interpret or misinterpret events and our dilemma as to whether to "go with the flow" or challenge generally accepted wisdom. Many of the poems represent a virtually spontaneous reaction to an injustice, an etymological conundrum, a political decision or, occasionally, a reaction to being stimulated by another art form such as music or a work of art. Most could possibly be the product of bipolar interludes over the last eight years. About the Author The author writes with a fascination for words and their meaning. He recalls sitting down with an etymological dictionary at the age of twelve and pondering the significance of language, even at that early stage. After studying Latin and German at university, he went on to become a teacher. Later on in life, he realised a long held desire to pursue a more psychological approach to the function of language. He believes in constantly seeking out new ventures and in reinventing himself to meet such challenges. His poems form a response to the bizarre and incongruous situations in society; to injustice, deceit and farce. Diagnosed at the age of 52 with manic depression, John can now with hindsight understand why in the past he had been capable of staying up all night writing his dissertation at the one extreme, and yet frequently feeling lacking in motivation, at the other. John Sawkins spent the early part of 2000 in a psychiatric hospital after a particularly florid manic episode, but succeeded in regaining his post as a college lecturer six months later. His experiences led him to challenge the pharmaceutical industry's involvement in the treatment of mental illness and successfully seek out for himself alternatives to medication.
