Goose Music

Synopsis

Goose Music is a collection of new poems co-authored by Andy Brown and John Burnside, two writers with backgrounds in ecology and notable for their lyric poetry. John Burnside won the Whitbread Prize for poetry in 2000. Characterised by their formal variety, lyric intensity and their attention to natural detail, the poems in Goose Music are Ecopoetic, asking questions of how we might dwell on the earth in these times of great environmental change, exploring lyric ideas of identity, self, myth, landscape and place.

Praise for this Book

‘To disappear within the hum of creation is every creator's fiercest longing. And to reappear, reincarnate, grinning for all of the apparent reasons! Such is the magic Brown and Burnside make in Goose Music.’ —Thomas Lynch

Reviews of this Book

‘Mystery, luminosity and forgetting the maps – that thrilling space between sense data and faith.’ —Paul Farley
