The Empty Bench: Songs of Life, Love and Loss

By Stephen C Lovatt

Poetry, Psychology & philosophy, Romance | Paperback


Stephen Lovatt has always been interested in hymnody and poetry, especially that of William Blake. He started to write poetry seriously in 2009 after moving to Cheltenham. This is his second collection of poems. It focuses on philosophical and emotional significance, and in particular the nature and experience of love. The text is informed by his Platonism and Catholicism.




Stephen Lovatt was born in 1958 in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The jolt of his mother's death when he was fourteen, made him resolve to become a member of the Methodist Church. He was accepted to read physics at Trinity College in 1976. He was received into the Catholic Church in 1979. After graduating, he worked in the electronics industry. In 1990, he returned to academic studies and was awarded a PhD in Physics in 1993. At about this time he discovered the works of Plato. He published his first non-fiction book "New Skins for Old wine: Plato's Wisdom for Today's world" in 2009, followed by "The Good of Being" in 2012.
