9780571313617: Happiness
Reseña del editor:

Happiness is the long-anticipated debut collection from the award-winning Jack Underwood. With the sort of smart, persuasive voice associated with Simon Armitage and Michael Donaghy, these poems worry at the world in search of consolation, or else meet life's absurdity and strangeness half-way; whether sitting proudly atop an unexploded bomb, or injecting blood under the skin of a banana, playfulness and imagination are vehicles for confronting 'the fearful and forgotten things I've lied to myself about'. Here are poems which address anxiety about fatherhood, remorse for lost lovers and friends, or mourn for a miscarried sibling.

Happiness is a collection preoccupied with the ephemerality of happiness itself, at the ever-present possibility of its departure, and the ways we try to grasp and keep hold of it. 'Every single thought I'm having is about LOVE', here meaning both the pleasure and panic of love, its peculiarity; love as a feeling of risk, love for one's own body, familiar yet estranged, of 'cack-handed LOVE at his console', love like 'pausing to move a snail somewhere safer in the rain'.

Biografía del autor:

Descripción FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Main. 198 x 131 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Happiness is the long-anticipated debut collection from Jack Underwood. These bright, beguiling poems worry at the world, surreally exploring the reservoir of wrong headed questions with which love and death confront us. Readers will meet life s strangeness half-way in poems where a childhood horse and recent lover look through a photo album together; where sadness is a yacht.an anvil dropped from heaven ; fear for a future child is a fizz building in a bad grey egg ; a beef steak is a question, hung in itself, about blood , and love is someone pausing to move a snail somewhere safer in the rain . In the unpredictable world of these inventive poems, visualisation becomes an empathetic act, a means of sharing the fearful and forgotten things we lie to ourselves about. Happiness is a collection preoccupied with the ephemerality of happiness itself, at the ever-present possibility of its departure, and the ways we try to grasp and keep hold of it. Self-aware and sad, daring and funny, this is an accomplished and memorable debut from a distinct new voice. Nº de ref. de la librería AA99780571313617
