"Scattering Eva is an ambitious and exhilarating collection. James Sheard can
manage both scale and intimacy, governed by a fine ear, in language both rich and chaste. Combining love, politics, history and belief, Scattering Eva quickly takes up residence in the reader's imagination. Sheard is also something of a rarity - a manifestly European poet working in English. Not to be missed" (Sean O’Brien)
"These poems burn with life and feeling. James Sheard is an eloquent writer whose linguistic verve is offset by short, spare lines and a sombre musicality" (Helen Dunmore)
"His language has the acid precision of a drypoint, perfectly servicing the difficult ambition of its subject-matter with images that made me catch my breath" (Adam Thorpe)
"James Sheard at his best is a strong, and already much-praised poet... He has a powerful, almost mythic sense of political struggle" (Alison Brackenbury)
A powerful second collection from the acclaimed contemporary English poet.See all Product description

Scattering Eva made no impression, heartless as it sounds. This second volume's a keeper; is there a Longleyesque quality about him? I didn't think the prose piece came off, to put it politely, but two pages further on is Letters; read that and I think you'll want the book.
