Alison Brackenbury reviews The Terrors in the latest issue of PN Review (#191, Jan-Feb 2010).
Is this poetry or prose? It flashes across boundaries. Its allusiveness would make it elusive to many readers. But not all poetry has to be straightforward. The Terrors is clever, elegant and troubling, not least in a late, mysterious address to a woman and child: ‘I spent nights just watching her breathing.’
The Terrors is available for five of your English pounds from Throckmorton’s Bookshop.
