Shortlisted for the 2014 Forward Prize for Best Collection ‘At last the night surrounded me; / I floated on it, perhaps in it, / or it carried me as a river carries / a boat’. In Louise Gluck’s new collection, night takes on the dimensions of myth, becomes the setting for a sequence of journeys and explorations through time and memory, as the speaker of the poems moves backwards into childhood and forwards into ‘the kingdom of death’. Gluck draws equally on the worlds of fairy-tale, of dream and of waking life, each poem a door into a narrative both haunting and compellingly beautiful.
