Elizabeth-Jane Burnett’s Swims documents wild swimming in lakes, rivers and seas across the UK, starting and ending in Burnett’s home county, Devon. An evocative long poem split into chapters, Swims is interspersed with a sequence about the poet’s father. This mesmerising, lyrical debut cuts a path through Britain’s waterways, investigating the human impact on the natural world as well as nature’s unmistakable effect on us.
