MEET GRACE NICHOLS: SUMMER SPECIAL COMMENDATION

MEET GRACE NICHOLS: SUMMER SPECIAL COMMENDATION

In Passport to Here and There Grace Nichols traces a journey that moves from the coastal memories of a Guyana childhood to life in Britain and her adoptive Sussex landscape. In these movingly redemptive and celebratory poems, she embraces connections and re-connections with the ability to turn the ordinary into something sensuous and memorable whether personal or public, contemporary or historical, most notably in a sonnet-sequence which grew out of a recent return trip to Guyana. Her ninth collection of adult poems and her fourth book with Bloodaxe, Passport to Here and There makes a significant contribution both to Caribbean and to British poetry.

      Atlantic – now sleeping in the distance
      peaceful as a dog glossed by the morning sun.
      Atlantic – now churning up an army of wild horses,
      white manes threatening a biblical leaping
      or brooding on the ships that bruised your memory

Passport to Here and There is Grace Nichols's third new collection since her Bloodaxe retrospective, I Have Crossed an Ocean (2010), following Picasso, I Want My Face Back (2009) and The Insomnia Poems (2017).
