£9.95

Product Details

This collection brings my work back to the more formally literary, engaging with the 20th century European traditions that brought me into writing poetry. The poems mark a re-engagement with narrative, a first-person subject, though fluid and ironised, and explore ideas surrounding contemporary political and moral factionalism, and its often infantile, hypocritical character, and the place this has in a wider notion of humans as arrogant animals divorced from our history, planet, consciousness and fellow animal beings. The presence of Mayakovsky, Char and Cendrars sit beneath the work as a whole. - SJ Fowler
