Product Description

Synopsis

The Ark is Peter Scupham's latest collection of poems, following his Selected Poems and Watching the Perseids , both published by OUP in 1990. The poems explore questions hovering on the borderlines of `is' and `seems', life and death, truth and lies. His Ark is steered to `its safe and certain loss' with a freight of dreams, memories, terrors, gifts; it is a habitation that carries him through varied landscapes and weathers to a possible Ararat. Three very different sequences hold the collection together: an experimental sequence, `Accident', followed by `Annunciations', and `A Habitat', a group of poems loosely surrounding the retrieval of an old house from its ghostly past. This book is intended for readers of comtemporary poetry.

Format: Unknown Binding
Scupham is one of the best neglected poems of the last twenty years. His books move from the lapidary towards the magical and humane. The Ark is in fact a house, a domicile where value, memory and loss are gathered and threatened. His craftsmanship and his ear are spot on. Highly recommended
