Description

In Stranger we journey from people to places, visiting creatures, objects and conditions, all of which are odd, slightly off-kilter, seen from a unusual perspective… Linguistically deft and formally inventive, the poems challenge us to reflect on the stranger in our midst, conceptions of social and personal estrangement, the strangeness of everyday life and what we might take as apparitions. With sections introduced by translations of Chinese Sung Dynasty poetry, the poems move between brief apercus to longer meditations. Original, haunting, alive to our current global situation, even at their most oneiric, these are inventive poems brimming with integrity from a distinctive voice.
