Memorial to the Future

Volker von Törne

Memorial to the Future

This selection from von Törne's collected poems is particularly significant in that it is a powerful and moving articulation of the psychological burden still carried by countless people today whose voices are not often heard, a burden which von Törne's powerful, poignant and sometimes angry poetry helps us all the better to understand.

M

Antony Rowland

M

The central sequence in M ('Manchester') responds to the murder in 2013 of Kieran Crump-Raiswell in Whalley Range, and tackles the contemporary themes of terrorism, industrial decline, and Icelandic violence. Ranging from Minorca to Cheetham Hill, Rowland's poetry covers a characteristic range of subjects and forms in what Peter Riley has termed 'an original and thoughtful handling of a major European modernist mode'.

Selected Poems

Georges Rodenbach

Selected Poems

This is the first-ever collection of Rodenbach's poetry to be published in English translation. In it, Rodenbach's vision of Bruges, so brilliantly portrayed in his famous symbolist novel, Bruges la Morte, is drawn with even more potency. Using the symbolist devices of suggestion and mood, Rodenbach, in these poems, sifts the elements that make up the decaying Bruges. He sees it as a medieval corpse laid out for him to 'rescue' through his interpretation of its atmosphere of melancholy, its seductive romantic decline and its loneliness. With rare beauty and delicacy, Rodenbach's poetry spins its web of tonal impressionism and seems always to exist on the border of silence.
