Overview

A wondrous new collection of poetry from the winner of the 2000 Whitbread Poetry Award.

In his eighth collection, the poet looks deeply into how we see our world: the organic relationship between the environment and the unconscious, between ideas and creatures, in poems whose protagonists – from the deer in a suburban garden to the poet’s six-month-old son – are infinitely mysterious. Resonant and luminous, this is a work of intimacy and wonder from one of Britain’s most important poets.
