Product description

Review

'This is a beautiful, arresting, sympathetic collection... There is something about the control, the high resolution, that gives this book its special, contradictory emotional mixture: it is elegiac and buoyant... The wonder of these poems is that although they could hardly be more personal childhood; the end of an affair; a sequence on IVF treatment there is no self-indulgence and no sense, for the reader, of being an intruder.' --Kate Kellaway, Observer

'Copus's ample stanzas give us a world as intensely realised as a novel, in which life itself seems to be taking place... What her poems of time and change propose runs counter to contemporary habits: hope, they say, is worth the candle, and this quietly powerful, deeply felt book ends with an affirmative for the future: 'I give myself over, shell and shelter, / child, my own.'' --Sean O'Brien, Sunday Times

'A master poet at work. With a characterful blend of the heart-felt and the experimental, delivered in language that is never less than pin-sharp, it is one of the most striking volumes of the year.' --Matthew Richardson, The Spectator

Book Description

With The World's Two Smallest Humans, Julia Copus brings an unforgettable and thrilling new voice to the Faber poetry list.
