The Grief of The Sea by Jennifer Edgecombe
Jennifer Edgecombe’s debut pamphlet The Grief of The Sea is an exploration of loss and its relationship with the ocean, the two eternally bound together. These poems showcase her exceptional ability to evoke taste, touch, sound, and most of all, depth of feeling. “The sea, the sea, always recommencing” wrote the great French poet Paul Valéry – that same sea weaves wave-like in and out of Edgecombe’s powerfully vivid coastal histories. A majestic debut.
