The Glass Enclosure

The Glass Enclosure

by Ian Pople

Poetry Book Society Recommendation

This is Ian Pople's first collection. His poems illustrate perfectly a mature use of language. An adept use of image and form are used as the vehicle to address his - and the readers' - conflict between self and the universal diaspora. Pople touches the raw nerve of cultural alienation.

Ian Pople has an eye for detail that other poets would envy.

David Jacobs, Ambit

Throughout this collection there is to be heard an insistent tone of voice, a call-signal: it's the sound of a genuine, mature and uncompromising poet hitting his proper level.
