The Book of Blood, Paperback

The Book of Blood Paperback



Split between dark and light, this book records the dichotomy of human experience with unflinching force and clarity.

It deals with break-up, depression, illness and death.

But it also reveals an intense involvement with nature and a capacity for healing and love.

There are intimate personal poems reflecting on relationships with people and creatures; poems which enter the lives of real and imaginary characters, Keats and Medea and Blodeuwedd, for example; and also poems which engage with paintings and political events.

Set in a territory which connects child with adult, myth with reality, the personal with the universal, the book shows a poet fully open to the richness and possibilities of the world but also aware of its violence and pain, not as a remote observer but as someone who is a part of it.
