Blood / Sugar, by James Byrne

Reader reviews

The rarest thing in British poetry, a book of absolute and genuine originality. Acute and heuristic, Byrne deciphers in deep poetical hieroglyphics the epoch around him. Each poem is a codex, a phylactery of meaning waiting to be discovered. Born of a deep reading of the esential European texts, Byrne disarms history and the history of the poem within the poem. Read him.
