about this item

In Spills, poet, critic and translator, Angela Leighton looks back on her past; from memories of her childhood between northern England and Italy, to her Jewish heritage and relationship with her father, the famous prize-winning composer, Kenneth Leighton. She also contemplates the weighty subjects of death and mortality through candid and honest poems which draw from various classical sources including the Bible and Greek mythology. This collection also contains Leighton's English translations of the work of Sicilian poet and politician Leonardo Sciascia, who openly wrote about the corruption of Sicilian government during the mid-late 20th century.
