Myself and Other Strangers - Robin Lindsay Wilson

myself-and-other-strangers
£ 8.99 each

In his second collection, Robin Lindsay Wilson pushes his distinctive style of short lines that become run-on sentences often traversing the poem in a single, frequently unpunctuated sentence, to develop an intriguing and powerful voice. Astute and full of wit and inventive ways of seeing, whether the subject is a relationship or issues of social class, these are dense poems full of layers, but never obscure. Throughout the collection runs a sense of human striving to connect, whether with the self or with other strangers, that makes this an eminently humane as well as highly accomplished collection.

a smell like the fast release
of Wellingtons or an early
discovery of damp groin
makes you sorry for people
you do not want to know
