Title: The Wrecking Light

Author(s): Robin Robertson
ISBN: 9780330515504
Sku Code: 9780330515504
Media > Books
The Wrecking Light
`Robertson's view of human nature is unremittingly bleak and startling in its honesty . . . It comes as little surprise that Robertson is drawn to classical works, particularly Ovid, whose bloodthirsty episodes he updates with flinty contemporary imagery. It's this shifting of pace and form throughout that makes this collection so compelling.' --The List'Whether in his extraordinarily fresh renderings of Ovid or his own imaginings, Robertson's lives have the luminosity of myth. The Wrecking Light is a work of extraordinary visionary power, its music bleak and beautiful, spare and unsparing. If there were justice in the world, it would win every prize going.' --Guardian`The plaintive tone of The Wrecking Light is wholly convincing and the poems are written with a cold, exacting and imaginative awe . . . It's still early in the year, but this surely will be one of the outstanding collections of 2010' --Irish Times`There is an acuity of loss in Robin Robertson's work, both in the clarity in which it is expressed and in the sharp relief it throws on other things.' --Financial Times`Uncompromising concentration distinguishes all the poems in this fourth collection. Do not look to them for comfort, but for an austere, vigorous beauty; the language is both lyrical and taut as a bow string.' --Intelligent Life`Robertson doesn't give ground to the illusory comfort of the ordinary, and he has a sardonic humour of his own . . . poetry matters a good deal, though it has little obvious comfort to offer, just the compelling evidence of its own serious attention and its shaping impulse, which ought to be enough.' --Sunday Times'Robin Robertson continues to explore the bleak, beautiful territory that he has made his own. His stripped-bare lyricism, haunted by echoes of folksong, is as unforgiving as the weather and poems such as At Roane Head show him writing at the height of his considerable powers' --The Times --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
