Harry Guest : Comparisons & Conversions
Published January 2009
Paperback, 88pp, 8.5x5.5ins, £8.95 / $15
Comparisons considers the disparities between memory and expectation as well as the alteration in events separated by the gap of years—since, sometimes when we journey, we are "hoping by space to leave / the faults of time behind".
Conversions contains the poetry translated since Versions appeared from Odyssey in 1999. Harry Guest regards the effort of translation as a vital complement to creative writing, providing not only a technical challenge but also the strange effect of inhabiting another's consciousness for a while.
