Jane Duran

Breathe Now, Breathe

• Paperback

Description:

WINNER OF THE FORWARD POETRY PRIZE FOR BEST FIRST COLLECTION OF 1995

‘Jane Duran’s debut should not go unheralded. She delivers her courageous and richly textured poems with a quiet authority. This collection warrants celebration.’ Michael Donaghy

‘You can tell at once that Jane Duran is a real poet by going through any of the poems in this book. Every word is chosen with precision but touches on that strangeness which takes poetry up a notch from good prose. There is a great charm and naturalness as well as tact and skill in handling sound and syntax. Take a biopsy with 'The First Wife' and 'Braided Rug' and be convinced.’ Peter Porter

'Duran – a Spanish-American born in Cuba, resident in England since 1966 - twists her hybrid colours into rich, sensual, and perfectly controlled statements of memory and loss...A poet to rejoice in.' Adam Thorpe, The Observer

‘Her poems are voyages of discovery. Literally. Over and over she writes about the journeys, physical and metaphysical, that are transformative experiences.’ Sarah Maguire, Poetry Review
