The Graft

Synopsis

These quiet and lyrical poems take on the difficult task of maintaining a living connection with literary tradition. ‘The Graft’ turns upon moments of uncertain feeling wherein the clarity of loss dispels our anxious dialectical interrogations. The poems are cross-pollinated with images of cyclical change, haunting, germination, hibernation and resurrection. The desire of order runs up against the fact of our hybridity, which is reflected in the delicately variegated forms of this collection: ‘a mutation, no more or / less, like the rest’.

Praise for this Book

‘These early poems have a steely tenderness to their poetic thinking […] they stick in the reader's mind with uncannily agreeable force.’ —Ian Patterson
