David Caddy: The Bunny Poems
Published 15 September 2011
Paperback, 80pp, 8.5x5.5ins, £8.95 / $15
The Bunny Poems give us a 'localised sensation' of twentieth-century
rural existence. They re-connect us with the land as a deep, mirroring presence;
the double-edged properties of plants; creature-sense; and the animal face
each human carries. At the same time, the poems are an acute acknowledgement
of absence; in speech, understanding and
relationship. David Caddy's edge of anger works to show real events having real consequences that can be subtle yet devastating.
The poems make
the case for how the slow erosion of poverty and remoteness, can deprive
community of a language resourceful enough to protect itself.
