Dr. Mephisto, Paperback / softback Book

Dr. Mephisto Paperback / softback

Part of the Salt Modern Poets series


Dr. Mephisto is in the form of a long sequence of poems.

It traces Mephistopheles as he ranges freely through time and space, at times a laconic observer, at others a thuggish participant, but always a presence wherever there is conflict and suffering and whenever there is work to be done.

Far from being oppressive, this is an exciting and highly original work, whose exhilarating pace is set by Emery's innovative use of language and form, and whose acerbic political edge keeps the vision sharp and fresh.

Compelling, hard-hitting, and grimly funny, Dr Mephisto will be remembered long after being read, and a significant new poetic voice will have been recognised.
