Product description


'A lesser poet might appear self-conscious after the exceptional success of The Drowned Book, which in 2007 won both the Forward and TS Eliot Prizes. But the writing in Sean O'Brien's profound and thoughtful November is conspicuously applied. Despite its range and sophistication, every freighted lyric phrase earns its keep in a volume that addresses both personal bereavement and the collective loss of social values . . . Truth may be beauty, and beauty truth, but it's a masterful writer who manages, like O'Brien, to get both into his verse.' --Independent

Book Description

A brilliant new collection from the T.S. Eliot and Forward Prize winning poet

Format: Paperback
The range on show here is nothing short of breathtaking. Goes from witty to heart-string rippy without even stopping for breath. Like trying to swim in the wave machine of another man's mind. Exceptional.

Format: Paperback
Sean O'Brien has received numerous awards and prizes in the poetry world but when he writes in this collection 'This world as we find it consists/ Of two sorts of people; those here in this room and the rest, On the one hand those present and then the great herd...' I wonder what sort of people can possibly see merit in this and I'd like to ask them what merit this is. This is no grand attempt at irony, it's something much darker and best avoided.
