About this item
Crystalline poems of beauty and risk, from T.S. Eliot and Forward Prize shortlisted poet, Fiona Sampson. '...the heart's tick-tock machine rebuilds, rebuilds, rebuilds.' Bright, sharp and elemental, the poems of Fiona Sampson's latest new collection are of quiet attention and devastating clarity -- paying full attention to slices of life and states of mind -- delicately hewn patterns of patience and grace, exquisitely observed. Their lightness and dark hang perfectly balanced, their lucidity and understated power both remarkable and memorable. This is a collection that belongs the shifting of seasons, not only in the subject matter but in the way the poems reveal a shift in style and method. Here is a master work of renewal, beauty and risk, from a poet of formidable powers.
