56 is a collaboration between two poets from very different literary traditions whose ears are tuned to a mutual music, voice, lyric, association, and language. With a painting by Jenny Saville as a starting point, this collaboration grew into a sequence of 56 poems which, by coincidence, was begun fifty-six years after 1956, the year in which George Szirtes came to England. The result of this inventive dialogue is the creation of a rich poetic territory, an isle full of noises and magic.
