Richard Skelton

A book about rivers, lakes and other inland waterways, Limnology is a sequence of word-lists, text rivers and myth-poems that explore the rich corpus of water words found in English, the dialect of Cumberland, Icelandic, Anglo-Saxon, Gaelic, Irish, Manx, Welsh and Proto-Celtic.

Limnology is accompanied by a CD containing a new piece of river music – a single composition that has gradually accrued volume and pace over the past six years, swelling to nearly 30 minutes of vivid, and sometimes violent, intensity.
