“The Cut of the Light” draws extensively on Jeremy Hooker‘s poetry written over a period of forty years.
It shows the development of a poetry concerned with nature and history and the spirit of place, and comprises both formal variety and the ‘art of seeing’ which relates Hooker to a vital tradition of British and American poetry. The book contains early, previously unpublished poems and some new versions of later work. It represents the best of a consistently exploratory poet whose work is celebrated for its power and delicacy.
A sumptuous hardback, this book is an excellent gift for a poetry lover.
