Review: Twist, by Pippa Little

Through her nuanced, free-spirited and metaphorical language, Pippa Little's latest collection, Twist, conveys the intricate interplay between knowledge and imagination, and meditations on the intimacy and bond of sisterhood. Born in Tanzania, raised in Scotland and who now living in Northumberland, Little's poetry captures glimpses of the human imagination and one's hidden knowledge about life.

From history, ancient myths, wildlife, to vexed relationships, Little's poetry is marked by her perceptiveness and unsettling language.


Altogether, this is a sophisticated and adventurous collection from an assured poet, one that questions one's everyday beliefs and ways of seeing, while pushing the boundaries of poetic voice, syntax and form.
