A rich collection of poems by a poet writing at his best,
This review is from: Drysalter (Cape Poetry) (Kindle Edition)
A series of 150 poems, all but one of fifteen lines. Within that limitation of length, they use a wide variety of verse structure and tone. They range from the mystical to the politically engaged. Many of the poems take very ordinary things as starting-points and transmute them into something wonderfully rich and strange. This volume shows Michael Symmons Roberts writing at his best, with his imagination at full stretch. If you like modern poetry, this is a book to relish.
