Say Something Back, Paperback / softback Book

Say Something Back Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Say Something Back will allow readers to see just why the name of Denise Riley has been held in such high regard by her fellow poets for so long.

The book reproduces A Part Song, a profoundly moving document of grieving and loss, and one of the most widely admired long poems of recent years.

Elsewhere these poems become a space for contemplation of the natural world and of physical law, and for the deep consideration of what it is to invoke those who are absent.

But finally, they extend our sense of what the act of human speech can mean - and especially what is drawn forth from us when we address our dead.

Lyric, intimate, acidly witty, unflinchingly brave, Say Something Back is a deeply moving book by one of our finest poets, and one destined to introduce Riley's name to a wide new readership.
