Uncertain Measures PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Uncertain Measures free pdf 'A Ritual Landscape' sets out Aidan Semmens' stall from the start of this, his third full-length collection. These are poems that 'have legs'-that continue the journey outward begun in A Stone Dog and The Book of Isaac, and elaborate the argument and project of one of our most ambitious and accomplished poets. What runs through this book, like Brighton rock, is a traditional, yet questioning, and taut lyricism, a poetry of argument in the voice of smouldering outrage. The voice of these poems inhabits the place of post-industrial landscape in a way not as effectively revisited and examined since the poetry of Roy Fisher in, 'a place of gathering /an enclosure of power and spirit, ' in a 'slow recovery of knowledge'

About Aidan Semmens

A 33-year gap separated the publication of Aidan Semmens's first poetry pamphlet by Lobby Press in 1978 and his first full collection, A Stone Dog, by Shearsman in 2011. He has since edited By The North Sea- an anthology of Suffolk poetry (2013) and relaunched Molly Bloom, a magazine he founded in 1981, as an online-only publication (www.mollybloom.org.uk). He lives in Suffolk and is a freelance journalist.
