Fire Songs

by David Harsent

eBooks of the Month Poetry

Fire Songs Synopsis

Winner of the T S Eliot Poetry Prize 2014.

Throughout the book - in the stark biography of 'Songs from the Same Earth', the troubling fractured narrative of 'A Dream Book', the harrowing lines of connection in four poems each titled 'Fire', or the cheek-by-jowl shudder of 'Sang the Rat' - Harsent writes, as always, with passion and a sureness of touch.
