Curtis never tells you things you already know - she tells you things you are, things you've always felt and have never managed to put into words. It's wondrously satisfying - like being broke then finding a twenty pound note in an old pair of jeans.--Luke Kennard "Exultations and Difficulties. "
To read Abi Curtis’s poems is to enter a world where the infinite possibilities of language are spread before you like a sumptuous feast; where each flavour and texture is a surprise and a delight. With her exuberant, unfettered imagination, passion for the natural world and fascination with the places where science meets poetry, these luminously imagistic poems give us characters facing execution with their ‘creamy spillages of silk’; and where voices are assigned to molecules, moles, lion-tamers and the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. She marvels at what the world has to offer and offers it back to us with stunning clarity and confidence. (Catherine Smith )See all Product Description
