The next big thing,
This review is from: These Days (Cape Poetry) (Paperback)
Leontia Flynn's mature and compelling new collection of poetry is a sure sign that she is destined to become one of the most important poets in contemporary arts. Humour resonates throughout her work, underscored with humble, bittersweet tones that never appear maudlin or ambivalent. Her uncanny sense of rhythm and deft timing of sentiment carry succinct meaning and she is one of those rare poets who always has something to say-with force.
For me, this collection is superior even to Whitbread winner 'Corpus' by Michael Symmons Roberts and, as a poet myself, I can only hope to write poems of such clarity and expertise in the future.
