5.0 out of 5 stars A courageous, engaging book, 21 Jun 2009
This review is from: How To Build A City (Salt Modern Poets S.) (Hardcover)
Chivers is one of the four winners of Salt's Crashaw prize, so has already beaten off hundreds of hopeful debut poets. And not without good reason. This book demonstrates a tone of courage and insistence, exploring both the energies of the city, and those darker more complex drives mirrored in the individual psyche. From the succinct intelligence of the wonderful opening poem 'Tube', to the long and impressively ambitious title poem, Chivers offers something both experimental and challenging, but with rhythms so engaging his work is always accessible. I recommend you read and re-read.
