Waterloo Teeth by John Whale


Waterloo Teeth by John Whale

Waterloo Teeth explores our capacity to articulate the pain and pleasure of lived experience - our own, and that of others distant from us - across different locations in history, culture, and in the difference of species.


Whether in the guillotine world of revolutionary France or deep in the sensation of sucking a sugar cube, these poems are full of interest and surprise. The texture of every poem is stirringly sensuous. Jeffrey Wainwright, poet, Clarity of Death
