Grimalkin & Other Poems

4.21  ·  Rating Details ·  24 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews
The poems in Grimalkin - Thomas Lynch's first publication in Britain are all concerned, in one way or another, with achieving a balance in the face of gravity. In each poem, Lynch is looking for this equilibrium between equal and opposing forces: the gravities of sex and death, love and grief - all the things that make us breathless and horizontal, mortal and memorable.

Paperback, 80 pages
Published August 4th 1994 by Jonathan Cape
