A Berlin Entrainment by Peter Hughes
After a decade concentrating on his distinctive versions of Italian classics, Peter Hughes moves on to this collection of poetry crystallising out of extended stays in Cambridge and Berlin.
Of Peter’s previous work Kelvin Corcoran has written: ‘I turn the new pages and am in bliss with the pertinence and grace of the living language’.
John Hall commented: ‘Read it, in the expectation of any number of lyrical pleasures, for the ear, for the play of line against continuous movement, for its celebration of remembered pleasures, for its good will and for its wit. By this last, I mean a mind in evidence in the poems that can constantly surprise itself in the turns of speech, that can dance in the syllables and still have world and experience in its sights.’
