Product description

Review

'Clarke brings his considerable erudition and love of language to allow the intellectual and the poetic mind to come together, imagining where and how Hermes might be concealed in everyday life - the whisper in the inner ear, the sudden silence when "the air hangs watchful", or "the fitful flare that lights our way".' Jules Cashford 'This is an impressive collection, with an ancient and perennial wisdom, and language that is modern, even "street-wise" without being cheap. I admire the range of contemporary reference; the "voice" of these poems suggests a real freedom of mind, and expresses a live imagination.' Jeremy Hooker 'Deft, witty, wing-footed - Lindsay Clarke's poems wonderfully embody what they describe: the god Hermes, who is comprehensively shown to be just as revelatory and double-dealing in the digital age as he ever was in antiquity.' Patrick Harpur
