The poet Cas Vos has already established a reputation with his previous collections of love poetry. In Intimately absent he touched on the themes of love and loss. In this collection, of his poems are fed from ancient times, the religious as well as the mythological, but also at the same time reaching out to the modern era. The poet searches for new links, connecting with other times, other texts and other art forms. The poem is palimpsest where other times and texts are constantly evident, where nothing is final. He involves artists, artworks, ancient history, the mythology, eroticism and music. Opposite the powers of silence and death, he poses that of sound, language and music. The poems in Duskant die donker/Before it darkens are accessible and should be appreciated by a variety of readers.
