Kelvin Corcoran: Backward Turning Sea
Published 15 February 2008
Paperback, 112pp, 8.5x5.5ins, £8.95 / $15
Corcoran's first collection since his New & Selected Poems in 2004, Backward Turning Sea (i.e. the Mediterranean) shows the author deepening his engagement with Greece, both ancient and modern — but it is a place where contemporary politics can intrude, disturbing the reverie. The collection also includes a number of poems based on the author's fascination with the paintings of the St Ives artist, Roger Hilton.
