The author's second full-scale collection, following a series of fine chapbooks, and his largest collection so far. Ian Davidson is one of the most exciting and innovative English-language poets currently writing in Wales, and his radical engagement with landscape in these poems offers new ways of using and approaching landscape within the context of a poem. "Davidson may use what he calls "procedures" but he does have things to say. The verse discusses landscape, the body moving through time, the connection between mind and voice. The music is one of dissonance and the feel one of continuous present… Davidson is a poet of conviction with rare touches of humour, mainly puns, and an agenda of onward shift, connecting the local with the global and 'terminal with terminal". ['e] is a welcome voice in a place [i.e. Wales] where he'll have a tough time getting heard." (Peter Finch, Planet No. 166)
